Two Tuesdays ago, we attended an educational soirée hosted by Fratelli Branca company at the Villa Victoria Center in South Boston. The Piccola Italia event featured Italian music, food, and spirits including Fernet Branca, Punt e Mes, Carpano Antica, grappa, and Caffé Borghetti espresso liqueur. For a start, I decided to be taught the beauty of the bitter vermouth Punt e Mes by bartender John Nugent. John's lesson included an inverse Red Hook-like drink that he dubbed the Capovolto, which means upside down or capsized.
