For those about to get bitter, we salute you!

The last carrot cakes are out of the oven, and its time to kick back with a cocktail! Well technically a highball!

If you love +Fernet Branca, you may already know that it pairs brilliantly with the flavours of ginger and vanilla!  Fernet Branca and Cola is a staple beverage in many bars, but I also really enjoy the simplicity of Fernet Branca and Ginger Beer (the spicier, the better!).  As with any highball, build this one in the glass, over ice.

1 oz. Fernet Branca (increase to 1 1/2 oz if you are an afficionado)
5-6 oz. Ginger Beer

Stir and enjoy.  Garnish with a lime wedge if you must.

  1. +Janice J. Cunningham the Fernet Branca is definitely bitter! its a flavour I quite like though, so I go a bit heavier on it.

    +Michael Ireland I find all the commercial ginger beers are a bit sweet for my palate – the bitter of the Fernet Branca knocks that right down.  When I have the time and inclination, I make my own ginger beer – definitely less sweet and packs more of a ginger punch
