Picked up a bottle of Fernet Magnoberta on Arthur Ave. this weekend. Any suggestions on how to use it? Is it interchangeable with Fernet Branca?
I've had Branca in cocktails, but don't have a bottle at home. Last night I made a cocktail with rye, white whiskey, simple syrup, Angostura, and the Magnoberta. Something called a *cough* Bumpass Hound according to the blogger at Cocktail Quest. I substituted the Magnoberta for the Branca. It was a delicious cocktail, actually, but I don't have anything to compare it to.
