A few weeks ago I was invited to take part in the #FestiveFernet-Branca cocktail challenge and after a great deal of brainstorming (that Fernet can be quite the tricky booze to work with) I finally came up with a drink recipe, Lushworthy enough to share with the masses. I’ve dubbed it the “Whimsical Wonderland,” and with ingredients that include apples and cinnamon it should serve as a welcomed addition to the holiday season.
In addition to Fernet-Branca, the “Whimsical Wonderland” also calls for Ketel One Vodka, cream soda, and sparkling apple drink (or similar). So, for anyone who may be a little intimidated by the herbs-heavy liqueur, there’s a nice balancing act with this cocktail thanks to the combination of sweet and tart flavors, in addition to the bitterness of the Fernet-Branca.
Check out the “Whimsical Wonderland” recipe below, cheers!
1.5 oz. Ketel One Vodka
.5 oz Fernet-Branca
3 oz. Cream Soda
3 oz. Sparkling Apple Drink
Handful Of Diced Red Apples
Add diced red apples to a large mason jar or tall glass. Add Ketel One, Fernet-Branca, cream soda, and sparkling apple drink. Stir, add ice, and stir again. Top with a dash of cinnamon.
