The bar at Forty Four in New York

An original creation from "The Cocktail Collective" behind New York's new speakeasy-style lounge, Forty Four. This potent, spellbinding gin-based concoction also uses rising spirit du jour, Fernet Branca. 

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 ounces Beefeater gin
  • 1/2 ounce Combier
  • 1/2 ounce Carpano Antica
  • 1/4 ounce Fernet Branca
  • Orange peel

Directions

Combine all the ingredients over ice and stir.

Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Express the oil from an orange twist over the drink and discard the twist. 

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
