Would You Artichoke Me? Just A Little?

1 12 oz Sweet vermouth, Carpano Punt e Mes
34 oz Cynar
14 oz Maraschino Liqueur, Luxardo
2 oz Lambrusco
1 sli Orange
Build in glass over ice, either a Collins or a wine goblet, finishing with the sparkling wine and dropping in the orange slice. Stir. Sip. Enjoy.
Concocted in a game of bartender telephone with Adam Manning of the South Place Hotel in London, who adapted an old drink of mine, the Old Giuseppe, by lengthening it with soda water, but accidentally switched the proportions of Cynar and Punt e Mes. His drink is called "Cynar What I Mean?" In response I took my original name, lengthened it with bubbly, and renamed it, reusing an old name I had kicking around.
