el rosario

1 1/2 oz Novo Fogo Cachaça (Novo Fogo Bar Strength)
1/2 oz Fernet Branca
1/2 oz Honey Syrup
1/2 oz Lime Juice
5 leaf Mint
1 pinch Black Pepper (2 cracks)

Shake with ice, strain into a coupe glass, and garnish with a mint leaf.
Two Sundays ago, I returned to online recipe flashcards for the Paper Plane near Atlanta and became intrigued by El Rosario from their April 2014 menu. Fernet and cachaça have partnered well before in recipes like the Pencil Thin Mustache and Macunaima, so I was game to give it a whirl. In the glass, El Rosario welcomed the senses with a mint, menthol, and grassy bouquet. Next, caramel, lime, and honey notes on the sip elevated into funky rum, mint, herbal, and menthol flavors on the swallow.
