|Freshly squeezed orange juice||2 Ounce|
|Punt e mes||1 1⁄2 Ounce|
|Simple syrup||1 Ounce|
|Brachetto wine||4 Fluid Ounce, chilled|
|Lemon twists||2 (For Garnish)|
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway full of ice cubes. Add the orange juice, Punt e Mes, Campari, and simple syrup. Shake thoughtfully.
Strain mixture into two flute glasses. Top each with Brachetto d’Acqui. Garnish each with a lemon twist and serve.
Note: Punt e Mes is an Italian vermouth, one that’s a touch more bitter than others on the market (but not so butter as to make you cringe). The name means “point and a half”; the story is that it comes from a corresponding rise in the stock market that gave a lucky investor enough proceeds to start the company.
