I did. It turned out okay but I think the Cynar + oxidation is not as good as Noilly Pratt + oxidation.

Gotta be careful...there are some awful sherry's out there.

I would suggest the Dry Sack Medium product which is widely available and very good (or their 15 year old version, although I don't know that I ever see that in stores).

I'd use cochi and byyrh over any regular vermouth.

I think it retails for like $25. $17 is really cheap. (Good deal)

Its really big in Boston. In surprised it isn't that common in NYC.

Cynar is a very easy drinking amaro.

I though byrrh was a quinquina cuz it had cinchona. Or are quinquinas a subcategory of vermouths?

Cynar is the artichoke one right? I rather like that

Bought some equipo Navajos sherry recently. Pretty tasty

Quinaquina is a subcategory of vermouth. Just like curracao is a subcategory of triple sec.

Edit: quinaquina is the plant I think. Quina is the class of fortified wines with quinine added, like cochi Americano

I like sidecars.

This dive bar I used to frequent had a half-full bottle of vermouth at the bar--I'm guessing it was probably several years old. I think I may have had a shot of it once for free.

My birthday dinner is next Saturday. In the leadup, ESPN will show a heavyweight boxing title matchup (and then another one a few weeks later). So yeah... even though its a bit of mismatch I am kinda stoked.

I always specify no vermouth if I am ordering a martini at a dive bar. If I don't want to be that guy, I generally just get bourbon on the rocks.

In Cambodia I ordered wine at this dive bar, it was so disgusting I couldn't finish it. The bartender said nobody had ordered it in months. I assumed it was the same opened bottle from that time. Cambodian standards.

Once when I was in Nederlands I ordered what we call in STL a "Dutch Grandee" but they prepared a French martini (Chambord and pineapple juice and whatnot). It's lucky I enjoy French martinis.

That could have been a can of Sprite and still would have the same effect
