If you’re going to order it even though you don’t like it, you might as well know what it is. Camper English has the answer.
Hipster piss drink, much like Stella
Douchebags drink a version of it called Jagermeister — just one big family, folks.
Fernet and Pepsi/Coke…good stuff.
All I know is that Fernet is fucking magic when I have an upset stomach.
Yep, it’s a Digestif. I will tell you about 6 shots can be a little too good for enhancing your digestion though.
You know what’s really magic for an upset stomach? Magi licorice tea.
Damn, that’s actually Fernet Menta(Mint flavored variety) in the picture, no self respecting Fernet aficionado I know touches that stuff.
I love Fernet, I still cringe at the taste but I love the effect one or two shots has on my attitude. Jäegermeister is sickly sweet and based on the herb Gentian like those little Underberg bottles you can buy at Amnesia.
@IHateHipsters you should know the “Hipster” drink of choice is a flask of Ancient Age.
way to announce it’s fernet time: glace at the bottle suspiciously and say “hey guys what’s that bottle?”
Oh, yeah and it has a legacy of popularity here in S.F. and in Argentina due to Italian communities that immigrated here. It probably helps that during prohibition era you could still get Fernet in S.F. as Medicine. Speaking of I might get some Medicine before I go see Lilac at the Li-Po tonight.
Li Po tmrw! LEWANDOWSKI shall Rock the Fucking House!
Um, I would not drink it like that.
It’s what I use when I run out of two-stroke oil.
you don’t shoot it. you have it in a small tumbler and sip it, with a beer back. good lord…
Obvs. Also good in coffee.
I dunno, it does have the color of cooked tar and you added coke you could shoot it as a Fernetball. Oh, you meant drinking it, nevermind.
Hello! That’s my picture of my lovely friend Josie. Just wanted to say that she’s drinking Fernet Branca not Branca Menta, that stuff is yuckmo to me.
Also, please link directly to my photo on flickr rather than just providing a link and uploading it to your blog. That’s how I have my CC license set up.
