So I have been told today is “follow friday” on Twitter … – which, being my 1st where I give a damn, begs for a cocktail to be made.
So what the heck do I base this cocktail on? Well, in this case I follow the K.I.S.S. principle – Keep It Simple, Stupid. And with that, we just pick items with an “F” in it.
This leads to another problem – not a lot of Alcohol starts with “F”…which I didn’t really figure when I started looking thru the Q-Bar (yeh, manually, because I lost my “database” of what the heck is in it…pending weekend project)….
Anywho, Frangelico’s – everyone’s favorite Hazelnut liqueur, and Fernet-Branca, everone’s favorite mystery flavor strong liqueur (80 Proof baby!) where what I had (and really there are only about 12 or so total F named alcohols).
With that – the recipe for the Follow Friday
In a Cocktail shaker with a little ice
– 1/2oz Fernet-Branca
– 1/2oz Frangelico’s
Shake and strain half into 2oz shooter glass; top with Orange Fanta.
Shoot and smile. Tastes good at 1st and then, SURPRISE – nuts hit you. Yes, just like this follow friday fun.
Happy Follow Friday Hour!
