About this Cocktail

Another cocktail created for a menu especially for when fellow bartenders visit for a drink.
While Fernet is a bartender's handshake and we do appreciate it in cocktails, the shot of the industry here is Chartreuse.
I love combining both in cocktails, seems like a fairly good challenge.
When i was testing this menu with some bartenders friends and i served this one they said : " don't change anything in this one, we're drinking it as it is "

  • 1 1/2 oz Bourbon
  • 2 bar spoons Fernet Branca
  • 2 bar spoons Chartreuse Green
  • 3/4 Cucumber syrup
  • Top with elderflower soda
  • Lime twist and mint garnish

    I was all out of cucumber syrup so I subbed celery syrup and it worked just fine. This will be a tasty one for the warmer weather. Thanks!

    I'm sure it would work amazingly , glad you enjoyed it. What elederflower soda you used ?
  • Brandon S Bassett
    I made my own. 2 tbsp St Germain to 1 cup water then carbonated.
