A dark & bitter Negroni variation
|3⁄4||oz||Gin, Magellan Blue|
|3⁄4||oz||Sweet vermouth, Carpano Punt e Mes|
Stir & strain over fresh ice in an Old Fashioned glass. Twist, rim & drop in the peel. If you prefer to serve it up, flame the peel.
The Magellan is a softer gin, and is used here primarily for its color and name. If you prefer more gin flavor, increase it to 1 oz. An orange twist works fine here too, but the lemon seems to play a little better with the Fernet.
Named for the Italian/Portuguese side of my family. Even though the gin is technically French, Magellan himself was Portuguese, so it seemed like a natural fit for this drink. And the blue hue helps darken it just a touch more.
