"This two-ingredient drink was created by Boston bartender John Gertsen. Gertsen and his fellow bartender Kevin Montuori were riffing on Manhattan variations, especially ones using high-proof Booker's bourbon. Punt e Mes is an Italian vermouth, more bitter than most sweet vermouths. At 120+ proof, Booker's can take Punt e Mes on head to head, so the Boston barkeeps decided 50-50 was the way to go. Because of Punt e Mes's bitterness, this drink doesn't call for the addition of bitters."
