Fanciulli

About this Cocktail

Named after the Italian slang word for “the boys,” this riff on a Manhattan uses Fernet Branca—a divisively bitter Italian amaro—in lieu of Angostura bitters. While its origins are murky at best, the Fanciulli is a bonafide bitter classic. When building the drink, make sure to use an overproof rye whiskey like Rittenhouse or a bolder bourbon like Knob Creek, which can match the intensity of fernet.
