Tried Luxardo Fernet for the first time yesterday. Bought a bottle today and have been playing around with it…
Given the recent bartender-driven popularity of Fernet & Coke, I thought I’d play around with a twist. Fernet and Cola Flip was the result.
30ml Luxardo Fernet
25ml Tanqueray Gin
25ml reduced cola syrup*
25ml lemon juice
Double shaken (preferably with block ice to limit the dilution) and fine strain into a coupette.
I garnished with a little freshly-ground coffee for the nose and bitterness.
* reduced cola syrup is exactly that – cola reduced to about 50% volume over a low heat, with sugar added at the end to bring it to approximately simple-syrup brix.
