Savoy Corpse Reviver (Revisited)

Fernet Branca is like taking your medicine. You waffle between whether it soothes or makes you feel more ill. I don't recommend this drink unless you are really sick or hung over, but I was surprised at how much white creme de menthe makes the drink more palatable. It is my first experience with something like this, Fernet blending in in any shape or form. Fernet Branca is pretty minty itself, and creme de menthe occupies a lot of the bitter and unpleasant space that the Fernet usually takes up. I found that this drink improves dramatically when had with cookies.
  • 1 oz. Fernet Branca
  • 1 oz. brandy
  • 1 oz. creme de menthe
Combine all ingredients with ice in a shaker. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
