From other users
  • Very good. Fernet is present, but subdued. Added another 1/4 oz of Canton to balance the acid and bring out the ginger a touch. A good drink. — ☆☆☆☆
  • only did 1/4 oz. Fernet; might up the ginger a little bit next time, too — ☆☆☆☆

Christina, you might want to

Christina, you might want to try King's Ginger - a new ginger liqueur which i think has a much stronger ginger flavor. It's about the same price as the canton so it's not cheap, but i like it for mixed drinks a lot more. That said, ginger syrup (or even really muddled ginger) can often do the trick.

Thanks for the tip- I'll keep

Thanks for the tip- I'll keep an eye out for the King's. I've never seen it, but Washington state is transitioning to privatized liquor sales, which I hope will translate to better selection...
