In this cocktail from Michael Dietsch's "Whiskey: A Spirited Story with 75 Classic & Original Cocktails," Canadian whisky tames the bitter, herbal bite of Fernet-Branca.


  • 2 ounces Canadian rye whiskey (such as Alberta Dark Batch)
  • 1/4 ounce Fernet-Branca
  • 1/4 ounce simple syrup
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Garnish: orange twist


  1. Add the rye, Fernet-Branca, simple syrup and bitters into a mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled.

  2. Strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with an orange twist.
