About this Cocktail

This original is named for my beloved fellow barkeeps back when I worked at Portland's Bunk Bar. They liked to celebrate with pints of Fernet and bourbon on ice.

Ingredients:
  • 1 oz Fernet
  • 1 oz bourbon
  • 3/4 egg white
  • 3/4 fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 simple syrup
  • 2 dashes angostura
  • Lemon peel
Preparation:

Dry shake firmly; add a few cubes and shake again until chilled. Strain over a big cube. Hit it with a lemon peel and some drops of ango.

    This thing is rough. You just can't hide Fernet

    Don't mess with the Bunk

    Only rough if you're not a fan of fernet.

    The egg does a lot to hide the Fernet. Not too rowdy. I used a 100 proof bourbon - I think that's helping keep it in like as well. A meek whiskey would be overrun.
