feral jennie

1 1/2 oz bourbon

1/2 oz pear brandy

1/4 oz falernum

1/2 oz lime juice

1/4 oz fernet branca

2 stems’ worth of mint leaves

4 thin slices of ginger


crush the mint in the bottom of a mixing glass.

add ice and ginger.  muddle.

combine all ingredients but the fernet and shake.

strain into a tall glass over fresh ice.

float the fernet on top.


somewhat more refined than the name might imply.  meant to be sipped through a straw while breathing in the aromatics of the fernet.  named for a certain scientist of my acquaintance, who becomes less feral the more time she spends in the wilderness.
