industry fav

1 3/4 oz Nolet's Silver Gin
3/4 oz Fernet Branca
1 oz Ginger Syrup
1 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with a lemon wedge and add straws.
For my next drink at Trade, I asked bartender Tenzin Samdo for the Industry Favorite. The combination of gin, Fernet Branca, and ginger has worked before in recipes like the Midnight Elixir and the Restauranteur so I was definitely game to try this drink. Once mixed, the Industry Fav offered a bright and spicy ginger and lemon aroma. The lemon notes continued on into the sip, and the swallow offered Nolet's strong juniper signature along with Fernet's minty-menthol and the syrup's ginger flavors. Indeed, I could see this drink being perfect after a large meal or with some soda water as a hangover palliative the morning after.
