3. Housemade Fernet
Abts and owner Brandon Pettit made “dozens and dozens” of trial versions of this herbal liqueur. They settled on a recipe that’s less minty and more chamomile-forward than the ubiquitous Fernet Branca.
“It’s not necessarily a syrup; it’s a little heartier, a little thicker than that.”
5. Rachel’s Ginger Beer
