Fort Point

The Fort Point is the house drink at the bar Drink (yes, that’s the name of the bar) in Boston. Since I went to a cocktail class with the bartenders from Drink and learned how to make it, it’s been my absolute favorite and my go-to cocktail.

  • 2 ounces Rye (I used Bulleit Rye, one of my favorites – note the empty bottle)
  • 1/2 ounce Punt E Mes sweet vermouth
  • 1/4 ounce Benedictine

Shake vigorously over ice and serve in a cocktail glass. Garnish with Luxardo cherry.


I usually make this with 50% more of each ingredient to fill the glass to the rim 🙂

I don't know what it takes to become a professional mixologist, but I'm going to night school at my own home bar to achieve that status. For now, I'm an amateur cocktail creator who enjoys learning about new drinks and rediscovering the classics.

  1. looks delicious. happily, i recently bought a jar of lombardo cherries for my home bar. my local liquor store had some samples and i fell in love

  2. I made a slight variation of this drink yesterday which turned out quite well. Instead of Punt e Mes, I used Amaro Ramazotti. The drink was a bit drier and more bitter, as you’d imagine, but the Benedictine does a good job balancing it out. Punt e Mes also has a slight bitter aftertaste, but it’s not as strong as the Amaro. A small change of pace to this already great drink.
