“Here is a cure for any overindulgence, taught to me by my wise father.”




1.Mix together and drink. Don’t be put off by the colour. Be careful – this is so effective you can find yourself turning to its miraculous powers with increasing regularity. Don’t let the cure become the cause.

Note Fernet Branca is Italian bitters, available from select liquor stores. In editing Fergus Henderson’s recipe for publication we strived to make only minimal changes to bring them into Gourmet Traveller style, preserving his voice as much as possible.

This recipe is from the November 2006 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.
