Fernandito Cocktail

Whiskey is wonderful, and vodka is very fine, but sometimes it’s best not to drink the hard stuff

This drink is delicious any time of the day, and is light enough to keep drinking — responsibly. It's perhaps best suited to an after-dinner situation, as herbal liqueur Fernet-Branca is said to aid in digestion and settle an upset stomach. It’s a simple, easy-drinking cocktail that looks as dark and manly as anything in the bar.

This recipe is from Thirstie, the on-demand alcohol delivery app with a twist.



  • 1 Ounce Fernet-Branca
  • 4 Ounces Coca-Cola


Pour both ingredients into a glass and enjoy.

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.
