If You Drank Jägerbombs, Try a Hanky Panky
Say it with us: ADULTS. DON’T. DO. JÄGERBOMBS. No disrespect to Jägermeister—one of our favorite liqueurs for mixing into super herbaceous cocktails—but plopping Jäger into a glass of Red Bull and chugging it is just not something a grownup does. If you’re still seeking that divisive, bitter, herbal flavor as a college grad, allow us to introduce you to Fernet Branca. A favorite amongst bartenders, fernet is just as brutal on the palate as Jägermeister and just as welcome in bittersweet cocktails. Our favorite is the Hanky Panky, a bracing, stirred blend of gin, sweet vermouth and fernet. Learn to love this cocktail, and you’ll earn the hardcore drinking status your Jägerbomb-shooting college self only dreamed of.
