On the Wings of Eagles

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 1/2 oz Cognac
  • 3/4 oz Rye whiskey
  • 3/4 oz Green Chartreuse
  • 2 dashes Lemon bitters
  • Splash Fernet-Branca
  • Garnish: Mint sprig


  1. Add the cognac, rye, Chartreuse and bitters to a mixing glass with ice, and stir until cold.

  2. Add a splash of the fernet to a rocks glass, roll the glass to coat the sides, and discard the excess.

  3. Add one large ice cube to the glass, strain the drink over the cube, and garnish with a mint sprig.
