Darling of the cocktail bartending scene, this is traditionally sipped after dinner to aid with digestion but is cropping up increasingly on cocktail menus around the world. A classic inky amaro, or bitter, you'll long remember your first encounter with this chap!

For an invigorating twist on a Manhattan, try the Fancuilli Cocktail, which calls for Fernet-Branca instead of bitters.

It is also an integral ingredient in the classic Hanky Panky Cocktail, which consists of equal parts Gin and Sweet Vermouth, with a couple of dashes of Fernet-Branca.
