For football season, we had a bartender from each NFL team's hometown provide the perfect cocktail to represent their team. This drink by Matthew Polzin of The Olde Bar is inspired by the Philadelphia Eagles, whose team color is represented by the green Chartreuse and team’s eagle represented on the bottle of Fernet-Branca.


  • 1/2 ounce Fernet-Branca
  • 1 1/2 ounces cognac
  • 3/4 ounce rye whiskey
  • 3/4 ounce green Chartreuse
  • 2 dashes lemon bitters
  • Garnish: mint sprig


  1. Add the Fernet-Branca into a rocks glass and roll the glass to coat the sides of the glass. Discard any excess, if desired.

  2. Add the cognac, rye, Chartreuse and bitters into a mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled.

  3. Strain the drink into the prepared glass over one large ice cube.

  4. Garnish with a mint sprig.
