Noggin Knocker

Noggin Knocker creamy cocktail with bourbon, Fernet Branca, milk, maple syrup, and a whole egg

Around the holidays, we find ourselves craving creamy Fernet Branca drinks – the bracing herbal digestif makes for a sophisticated upgrade on the season’s typical saccharine-sweet mint cocktails.

The Noggin Knocker, from Chris Spear at Little Perfect Bites, is the epitome of these Fernet Branca quaffs. A touch of warm maple adds a reasonable amount of sweetness, and brings out a matching note of chocolate from the bourbon base.



Dry-shake all ingredients first without ice, then again with ice added. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a short glass or snifter. Garnish with a dusting of freshly-grated nutmeg.

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have.
