The Birds Cocktail

The Birds Cocktail

  • 2.0 oz. Wild Turkey 101-proof Rye
  • 1.0 oz. Cocchi Americano
  • 0.25 oz. Fernet Branca

Stir with ice. Strain into old fashioned glass over ice. Twist a lemon peel then discard.

I scoured my bar for any bottles featuring a bird, as seemed appropriate for this cocktail. Famous Grouse didn’t work well in it, and I knew there wasn’t a Grey Goose that could stand up to Fernet, so this is the combination I happily ended up with. Yes, all three bottles feature birds. They’re coming for you.
