Mint fernet

Bottle of mint fernet (like Fernet Branca Menta) for cocktail recipes

Most recipes that call for this ingredient intend for Fernet Branca Menta, but if you have a local substitute, go ahead and try it out. You can even make your own passable facsimile by combining two parts Fernet Branca with one part mint syrup or white crème de menthe.

The base is an herbal amaro digestif like standard fernet, but it’s been mixed with mint (and sometimes sugar) to create something that has been described by hardcore connoisseurs in every way from “heavenly” to “an abomination.”

One nice detail is that the mint activates the tongue-sensors your brain uses to determine if something is cold. If you’re taking shots of whiskey on a desert camping trip, add a drop of Branca Menta and watch your friends trip out. It’s fun.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have, and makes tailored recommendations about what to buy next. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on your liquor collection.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
