Two Sundays ago, Andrea and I ventured over to Russell House Tavern. For a first drink, I asked bar manager Sam Gabrielli for the Fratelli Sling. Sam mentioned that this was bartender Adam Hockman's creation; its name puts it in the same league as the Fratelli Fizz and Fratelli Flip (although the Flip is an Averna drink). The Sling began with an orange oil and Fernet Branca aroma. A carbonated lemon, honey, and malt sip led into a rye and Fernet swallow.
