About this Cocktail

Emperor Norton was a 19th Century San Francisco vagrant and beloved social fixture who declared himself Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico, a declaration indulged by San Francisco high society and all lovers of the cantankerously odd and extraordinary. I honor His Imperial Majesty with a drink befitting the breadth and grandeur of an Emperor, with rums from far-off India and Guyana and a notable note from Fernet Branca, his hometown's beloved and equally unusual amaro of choice.

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 oz Old Monk rum
  • 3/4 oz Lemon Hart 151 rum
  • 1/2 oz Green Chartreuse
  • 1/4 oz Fernet Branca
  • 3/4 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 oz fresh pineapple juice
  • 3/4 oz strong ginger beer
  • 1 barspoon dark falernum (or substitute allspice dram but go easy on it)
  • 1/4 oz Punt e Mes
  • Garnishes: pineapple leaf, candied ginger piece, Luxardo cherry, pineapple wedge
Preparation:

Shake with plenty of ice, strain, serve up, garnish with pineapple leaf and candied ginger slice.
