Fernet Branca’s Cocktail of the Week

In February of last year, I was contacted by Fernet Branca, and asked if I’d like to be featured as one of their “cocktails of the week” on their social media sites. Obviously, I jumped at the opportunity! I came up with this variation of a drink I’d created almost a year earlier called “The Little Man”. With this variation, I emphasized the Italian origin of the famous amaro digestif, with the name “The Ragazzino”.

The Ragazzino

1.5oz Still 630 rye whiskey
3/4oz lemon
1/2oz Fernet Branca
3 dashes simple syrup
1 dash orange bitters
1 dash lavender bitters
shake/strain
garnish w/ an orange twist
