About this Cocktail

I originally submitted this herbal, tropical sour for a tiki-themed Mixology Monday. It later made its way onto the Whistler menu and stayed on there throughout the summer. Read the MxMo post at:

  • 1 oz Benedictine
  • 1 oz Lemon Hart 151 Rum
  • .5 oz Fernet Branca
  • .25 oz Demerara Syrup
  • 1.5 oz Pineapple juice
  • .75 Lime juice
  • 2 dashes Angostura Bitters

Build in a tiki mug, add crushed ice and swizzle. Top with more crushed ice and a generous portion of mint.

    Finally bought some Cruzan 151 and pineapple juice today just for this drink and it was one of the better decisions I've made in the last decade.

    Great drink. Threw in orgeat in place of demerara. Excellent.

    Different tastes for different folks, I guess, but I thought this was awful. Honestly, you can save the rest of the ingredients and just pour some Fernet over crushed ice and the flavor would be about the same. This is harsh and completely one dimensional with the Fernet overtaking everything else.
