Spicy, rich, and sublime.

Tequila and sherry form a perfect combo, as do Fernet-Vallet and fresh ginger—and all together? It’s a mix that’s spicy, rich, and sublime. Meet the Fernet Swizzle.


  • 1 1/2 oz. reposado tequila
  • 1 oz. amontillado sherry
  • 3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. demerara syrup
  • 1/4 oz. ginger juice
  • 1/4 oz. Fernet-Vallet (or 1/2 oz. of Fernet-Branca)
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 2 makrut lime leaves (optional)
  • Tools:muddler, swizzle stick or bar spoon
  • Glass:Collins
  • Garnish:mint sprig and additional dashes of Angostura bitters


Muddle the makrut lime leaves (if using) with the demerara syrup in a Collins glass. Add the remaining ingredients to the glass and fill three-quarters full with crushed ice. Use a swizzle stick or bar spoon to swizzle the mixture until cold. Pack the glass with ice to form a rounded mound on top, and dash Angostura bitters over the ice. Garnish.
