Complemented by the herbal and sweet notes from both types of vermouth, this drink also features a hint of mint from the crème de menthe and a subtle citrus complexity from the orange bitters. Essentially, it's a spirited concoction with a harmonious blend of herbal, sweet, and bitter flavors served in an elegant cocktail glass. The Pall Mall, with its sophisticated profile, is a nod to vintage mixology, offering a layered tasting experience that's both refreshing and aromatic.
