  • Sweet vermouth and Punt e Mes appear equally good.
  • One of several Ramazotti inflected mezcal cocktails, including the El National. Very nice slow Friday evening drink.

Wake up to "Goodnight Vienna!" What a wonderful drink, despite what one might think is an incongrouous mixture of alcoholic ingredients. In reality, they are incredilby congruent--almost beyond belief, until you sip on this delightful concoction. I mean, Grand Marnier and Ramazzotti! Come on; who in their right mind would mix them together? And then to throw in some Mezcal! Get me a head shrinker!

But pull yourself together, mix the drink using the given recipe, and you'll end up with an incredible before dinner drink, or a very satisfying late evening drink. I rate this libation at 4.5. Come on--mix, stir, strain, and then drink up--but do it responsibly!

Boosted ramazzotti and grand mariner by .25/ea for a more balanced drink for my palate with mezcal- got better.
