While drinking my Curaçao Punch at Lineage on Friday night, bartender Ryan Lotz mentioned that he had crafted a drink that was inspired by The Gerty and its usage of Peychaud's Bitters. At the time, the drink lacked a name and the bar lacked the Punt e Mes needed to make the drink. However, he mentioned that he found Vya Sweet Vermouth plus a dash of Campari made a decent substitution in a pinch and that the drink would have a name by the time it appeared on the menu next week. So for my second drink, I asked him if he would be willing to make me one.
