Sun Stealer cocktail with gin, sweet vermouth, and fernet

Sun Stealer

The Sun Stealer, a Hanky Panky riff by Henry Prendergrast at Chicago’s Analogue, is one such example. Against a solid base of gin and sweet vermouth, crème de cacao and an equal measure of Fernet Branca work together to create an intense, fragrant take on an after-dinner mint.
