Since the year 1845, the secret formula of Fernet-Branca Italian bitters has been based on an infusion from a unique blend of selected blossoms, rare aromatic herbs and other natural ingredients. Today you can enjoy Fernet-Branca anytime, straight, on the rocks, or with a splash of mineral water. Much prized as a hangover cure! How to make a Dr Zeus:
1 shot Fernet Branca
2 shots cognac
1/8 shot Kahlua coffee liqueur 1 dash Fee Brothers Orange Bitters
Method: Pour Fernet Branca into an ice-filled Old-fashioned glass (short tumbler). Top with chilled mineral water and leave to stand. Separately muddle raisins in the base of a shaker, add other ingredients and shake with ice. Discard the contents of the glass and strain the contents of the shaker into the Fernet Branca coated glass.
