Kind of a Christmas drink it is, the Schnitzelburg cocktail. With the Caradamaro and Maraschino cherry liqueur, combined with bourbon and Fernet-Branca it’s anyway the perfect sipper now, a few days after Christmas.
What we liked about this cocktail was its intensity. It’s a boozy drink, but with more tastes than just the strong bourbon. The small amount of bitter Fernet-Branca shines through, as does the sweet cherry liqueur and the spiced amaro.
Brown drinks are always challenging to photograph, They easily end up looking a bit . . . well brown. Here we tried to make things slightly prettier by adding lemon zests and by locating our photo shoot to a 1920s window vault.
2 oz bourbon
1 oz Cardamaro
0,25 oz Maraschino liqueur
0,25 oz Fernet-Branca
Stir with fresh ice and strain into a rocks glass with a large ice cube inside.
