So I pulled out these three ingredients, and decided that I had to make a drink.To make the Fashionista, begin like an Old Fashioned. In a mixing glass, muddle
- 1 1/2 oz aquavit
- 1/4 oz Fernet Branca
The result is something beyond its parts. There is a hint of chocolate and a hint of mint, but the total is sweet and orangy, almost like a cross between an Andes mint and the orange chocolate candy out of the Whitman's Sampler. You know what I'm talking about. Don't pretend you don't. There is even the hint of herbal from the aquavit.
While it's not quite refreshing, it's still tasty. The creme de cacao makes it slightly more wintery to my palate, so it's not a refreshing summer drink. But for a cool evening, it's nice. And it gives me something to do with that aquavit and creme de cacao. Sheesh.
