First, just a reminder that Sunday, Feb 27, 2011, is our monthly exercise in folly, Savoy Cocktail Book Night at Alembic Bar. If any of the cocktails on this blog have captured your fancy, stop by after 6 and allow the skilled bartenders (and me) to make them for you. It is always a fun time.
The countdown to the last “Cocktail” continues.
Say it with me, “NINE!”
1/2 Orange Juice. (Juice 1/2 orange.)
1/2 Fernet Branca. (Same amount of Fernet Branca.)
Use medium size glass, and fill with soda water.
I like Fernet so I had some idle hope that this would be appealing.
It is not.
As my friend Blair remarked, “kind of like drinking orange juice after brushing your teeth.”
Yeah, that’s about right. Yodel all you want, but I just say, “Ugh.”
This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
