fernet flip

1 oz Fernet Branca
1 oz Amaro Nonino
1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
1 Whole Egg

Shake once without ice and once with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Mondays ago, I returned to the Hawthorne bar bible and fell upon the Fernet Flip crafted by Ryan Lotz during his 2011-2012 tenure at the bar. It came across as an expansion of the Fernet Flip crafted a few years before next door at Eastern Standard by adding Amaro Nonino and Yellow Chartreuse to the mix. Once prepared, this Fernet Flip proffered minty and menthol aromas to the nose. Next, a creamy and caramel sip shared a hint of orange, and the swallow followed through with caramel, minty, and menthol flavors with a very gentle finish. Overall, the additions of the two liqueurs made the Fernet Flip rather elegant.
