Two Fridays ago, I honed in for my post-shift nightcap a recipe that I spotted on Punch Drinks article on the Ferrari and other 50:50 shots and drinks. The Ferrari is an equal parts mix of Fernet and Campari that I wrote about previously in the Ferrari Colada, but it has not seemed to get much action in Boston over just plain Fernet shots. The article's recipe that I wanted to make was The Black Stallion Sets Sail by John Parra and Kyle Henkin of Fox Liquor Bar in Raleigh, NC; they described the concoction as "a neo-tiki Negroni" and the name reminded me of the Fernet-laden Follow that Black Rabbit.
