I saw this recipe online and thought I’d try it. After making this I’m glad I tried it I won’t be making it again. I’ve liked Fernet-Branca in some things but the herbal flavors didn’t work with traditional Mai Tai ingredients.
Always say yes to try something new at least once.

Shake all ingredients with ice cubes until chilled. Pour unstrained into your mai tai glass and topping off with crushed ice. Garnish with mint, fresh flowers stolen from your neighbors garden.
