Italian Exit

PUNCH | Brooklyn, NY

If an Irish exit is leaving a party without telling anyone, an Italian exit is leaving a party with a vermouth cocktail in hand. This bittersweet stirred drink marries Carpano dry vermouth and Carpano Antica, all tied together with a splash of Fernet-Branca for a veritable Italian triple threat.


Serving: 1

  • 1 1/2 ounces dry vermouth, preferably Carpano Dry
  • 1 1/2 ounces sweet vermouth, preferably Carpano Antica
  • 1/4 ounce Fernet-Branca

Garnish: orange peel

  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass over ice and stir until chilled.
  2. Strain into a chilled coupe or cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish with an orange peel.
