Fernet & Jerry

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

When John Gertsen learned that Italian immigrants sometimes mix an obscure Sicilian bitters with eggnog as a kind of tonic, he had to try it. He substituted widely available Fernet-Branca for the bitters. The result? “The rich flavor of the egg takes the edge off the Fernet-Branca and the heat makes it smell heavenly.”

  1. 2 ounces Tom & Jerry Batter
  2. 1 1/2 ounces Fernet-Branca (bitter Italian digestif)
  3. 1/2 ounce Cognac
  4. 2 ounces hot whole milk
  5. Freshly grated nutmeg, for garnish
  1. Spoon the Tom & Jerry Batter into a small warmed mug or heatproof glass. Gently fold in the Fernet-Branca and Cognac, then gently stir in the hot milk. Garnish the drink with freshly grated nutmeg.
