A bit sweeter than I prefer. I added 1/2 oz dry vermouth (and I used Punt e Mes). I think I'd try it with just the dry vermouth next time, or scale back the sweet quantities.

I had my bartender make this for me tonight since I don't have the vermouth (but will soon, since it is absolutely delicious!)- I enjoyed this quite a bit and will make it again. I think it might also be good with a bit less CioCiaro so that the vermouth has more of a presence.

I just mixed a version with Amer Picon in place of the CioCiaro and it is divine. Not too sweet in the least. 5/5.

Um, I'm jealous :) I have been thinking about ordering the Bittermens Amere Nouvelle... Wonder how similar they are?

Hmm, dunno! Would like to hear about it if you find out.

I don't think they're similar - Amer Picon is heavy and caramelly, like Ramazzotti or other dark amaro. The Amer Nouvelle (IIRC) is a lighter spirit designed to show off the orange and gentian in a more neutral base. I'm getting them when they come to Texas, and will taste them side by side.

Made with 2oz Templeton Rye, Ramazzotti, and Antica Formula. A lovely drink to read with on a cool night.
