History

I was inspired by the Canon Cocktail Books's Remember the Maine riff called the Remember the Alamo that utilized Punt e Mes instead of sweet vermouth. Originally, I wanted to merge both Cherry Heering drinks with a Boulevardier, but gin won out since I could come up with a name. Here, I paid homage both to Count Camillo Negroni and to sinking ships.
