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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
