Panos Dimou, Belvedere Bar at The Belvedere Hotel, Mykonos Island, Greece

Branca Mule Panos Dimou

“The ginger beer used here is Thomas Henry.  Fever Tree will work just as well. There are no bitters added as the Fernet is quite bitter by itself.” Panos Dimou.

3 lemon wedges

40 ml (1.3 oz) Fernet BrancaBranca Mule

10 ml (.3 oz) Luxardo maraschino liqueur

Ginger beer.

In a hard bottom glass, muddle the lemon wedges to extract oils and juice.  Add ice, the Fernet , maraschino, and the ginger beer and stir gently.  Add the garnish.

gaz sez:  The brilliance in this baby lies in the maraschino which adds an unexpected dimension to what might, otherwise, be a predictable sort of drink.  Nicely thought out, Panos.
