From other users
  • Didn't have Punt e Mes, so I doubled the Campari, halved the sweet vermuth and 50% more lime. Very, very good. Cherry garnish. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Somehow there's a medicinal-mint taste in here so that I'd guess there is Fernet Branca involved. Tasty for those who are down with that kind of flavor. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Good balance of bitter and sweet. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Half vermouth, double Campari--excellent drink! — ☆☆☆☆

<br />This is my first

<br />This is my first cocktail using Zwack liqueur, and I must say it made a favorable first impression. Unlike an earlier comment, I could not discern a mint taste. The Campari, however, made its presence known, but only mildly so. As for this drink I personally rate it 4.5. An exceptionally good drink--either before or after dinner--but I favor before.
