    This herbal liquor, mixed with Coke, was all the rage when we were in Buenos Aires. It is bitter initially, then a has a minty back taste. Worth trying.

FAQs

Fernet is an Italian amaro, which is a bitter spirit with an enchanting, strong aroma. Created in 1845 in the northern Italian city of Milan, it is manufactured there to this very day by the famed Fratelli Branca Distillerie using rhubarb, myrrh, cardamom, chamomile, saffron, aloe, and distilled grape spirits as a base. The result is a sweet, spicy, bitter, and extremely herbal beverage, with a strong aroma and a flavor to match.
There are several options to drink Fernet Branca besides straight up. A few cocktails to try include the Fernet Sour, a.k.a. the Industry Sour, which is a quirky, bitter, sour combination of amaro, lime juice, and green Chartreuse. You can also try making a Toronto, the most classic of Fernet Branca cocktails: essentially a new take on the Old Fashioned that includes both Fernet Branca and whiskey. Or try the lascivious Hanky Panky, which is a gin martini given a new twist by the addition of this Italian amaro.
Brace yourself: Fernet Branca is an acquired taste. However, the fact that it has developed a cult following around the world should tell you that there’s more to this amaro than meets the nose. It tastes like a lot of things, including intense herbs and spices, bitter black licorice, and aggressive notes of chocolate, rhubarb, quinine, and aloe. Plus, there’s that generous 40% to 45% alcohol by volume (ABV) contributing to the flavor.
Fernet Branca is a rewarding bottle for anyone who likes a challenge or diving into something new — and this Italian amaro doesn’t disappoint. Give it to someone who likes intriguing liqueurs and adding herbal splashes to cocktails like the Toronto or the Hanky Panky. Made with a large mix of spices and herbs, this intense, bitter beverage has an alcohol by volume (ABV) between 40% and 45%. It’s also great as a simple mixer with Coke.
