About this Cocktail

The Governor of Pennsylvania circa the 1930s was Gifford Pinchot. His nigh-prohibition policies are the reason for Pennsylvania's absurd liquor laws. I priced this drink exceptionally low at my bar to give people access to a fine drink. Take that, Gifford Pinchot!!

  • 1.5 oz Fernet Branca
  • Ginger Ale (I prefer ginger beer)

Collins glass with ice, fill with ginger ale leaving roughly an inch at the top. Twist an orange peel over the top to expel its' oils. Skewer it. For a nice effect pour the Fernet Branca over the skewered orange peel at the table. The dark colored digestivo will fall pleasantly through the ginger ale.
