1⁄2 oz Fernet Branca (or 1/4 for the timid)
1⁄4 oz Pastis, Pernod (or absinthe)
1⁄4 oz Lemon

Shake, Rocks, Lowball


Original was poorly designed -- Fernet overwhelmed the drink. New version is beautifully balanced. A great drink for the adventurous imbiber.

  • Bitter, herbal
  • Very, very nice to sip, but I felt some small embellishment was missing. Will try again with mint, or maybe bitters of some sort
