  • Made it with curacao and Punt e Mes (the bitterness of which maybe wasn't the best match for this drink). — ☆☆☆

Subbed out Carpano formula

Subbed out Carpano formula antica for the vermouth.  Very subtle beginning, needs some time in the glass before the GM shows up.  Might try it with something other than Botanist next time.
