The Cavaletta is a bracing riff on the Grasshopper, with Fernet Branca Menta (a menthol-flavored Italian amaro) taking the place of the usual creme de menthe or peppermint schnapps.
- 1 part Mint fernet
- 1 part Crème de cacao
- 1 part Sweet cream
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a dusting of freshly-grated nutmeg.
