The NoMad’s Montauk

Leo Robitschek, The NoMad Bar | New York City

Like the Negroni, the Montauk traditionally employs a formula of equal measures, in this case of gin, sweet vermouth and dry vermouth. In his rejiggering, bar director Leo Robitschek eliminates the dry vermouth altogether, replacing it with a blend of sweet vermouth, blanc vermouth and Punt e Mes to add structure, bitterness and balance.


Serving: 1

  • 6 dashes Peychaud's bitters
  • 1/4 ounce Punt e Mes
  • 3/4 ounce sweet vermouth, preferably Carpano Antica
  • 3/4 ounce blanc vermouth, preferably Dolin
  • 1 ounce navy strength gin, preferably Hayman's Royal Dock

Garnish: lemon twist

  1. Combine all ingredients together in a mixing glass over ice and stir together.
