Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
Two Fridays ago, I was reminded of a drink in Sanctuaria: The Dive Bar of Cocktail Bars called Mr. Clark's Cane via the ScientistMcGee blog. Since Fernet Branca and Maraschino liqueur pair so well in drinks that use a little like the Newark to decent amounts like the Root of All Evil, I was curious to see what would happen if they made up most of the drink. The Mr. Clark in question was the author's former boss who asked him for a bitter-sweet cocktail one evening.
