If you've never tried the favorite Argentine cocktail, a fernet and Coke, you are in for a treat! The sweetness of Coke is tamed perfectly by the bitterness of the Fernet-Branca making a crazy easy and so delicious cocktail!
Cocktails Using Coke
A few weeks ago, I bought some Coke to make a Cuba Libre. A delicious variation of a rum and coke with the addition of lime juice. Believe me, the lime juice makes all the difference in the world.
I had also bought some Fernet-Branca to try the Toronto Cocktail. A yummy rye whiskey cocktail featuring the Italian bitter spirit.
Trying to not buy another bottle of liquor (my liquor cabinet is now 2 liquor cabinets and 2 shelving units) I went searching for cocktails that either use Coke or use Fernet-Branca, imagine my pleasure when I found a Fernet and Coke!
A Fernet and Coke (also known as Fernet con Coca) is a favorite Argentine cocktail. With only two ingredients, I bet it's going to become one of your favorites too!
All You Need to Make this Easy Cocktail
Fernet-Branca - an Italian bitter spirit. It is a bitter, herbal liqueur with a complex flavor.
Coke - I like to use Mexican coke which is sweetened with sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup.
How to Make Fernet con Coca
Fill a collins glass with ice.
There are many different ratios when it comes to the amount of Fernet Branca vs the amount of Coke. We like to stick with a 2 to one ratio - two parts Coke to one part Fernet-Branca.
Add 2 ounces of Fernet-Branca to your ice filled glass.
Top with 4 ounces of Coke and stir.
That's it! You've just made the easiest and tastiest cocktail!
We loved this easy cocktail! The sweetness of the Coke was perfectly balanced with the herby bitterness of the Fernet-Branca. Plus, you have to admit, it's crazy easy! So refreshing!
