I named this one after the notion of a 19th-Century-Cure-All because this drink has everything meant to cure ailments: Bourbon, Honey, Ginger, Lemon, Apples and Fernet! I nearly called it “Patented-Cure-All” but with the preProhibition Cocktail revival we’re having, I felt this name was a bit better. 🙂
Golden Age of Quackery
- 1 oz Bourbon
- 1 oz Bushel & Barrel (or Apple Liqueur or Unfiltered Apple Juice)
- 3/4 oz Honey Ginger Juice
- 1/2 oz Lemon Juice
- Fernet Branca Float
In tin, combine Bourbon, Bushel & Barrel, Honey Ginger Juice, Lemon Juice over ice and shake. Double strain into rocks glass with ice. Float Fernet on top.
Bonus: The Golden Age of Quackery is also awesome hot! Add 1 oz Water, make sure not to boil the liquids and still float the Fernet on top after you’ve poured the rest into a mug.
