About this Cocktail

i spent a weekend at a friends' cabin in the mountains that could have been right out of a horror movie with limited booze options. i went through the small kitchen for everything i could use in a cocktail and came up with this on the fly while we decided how our cabin-in-woods horror flick should go.

Ingredients:
  • 2 oz. Fernet Branca
  • .75 oz. ginger syrup
  • .25 oz. vanilla + clove brown sugar syrup
  • mint leaf
Preparation:

add all ingredients into your tin and shake, and strain into a coupe.

the latter syrup recipe:

1.5 cups brown sugar
1 cup water
1.5 tsp. vanilla extract
8 cloves

brought water to just under a boil, then added remaining ingredients and removed from heat. strain out cloves, and let cool.

    Well done. This should be a regular web series. Put people in an odd spot with limited supplies and see who can make the best cocktail recipe. Anyone on BarNotes a tv producer?
