If you are in love with Argentine wines, at some point you will have to sample the ubiquitous Fernet and coke, the Argentine national drink of choice and, for foreigners, either an affair of love or hate. And, if you dare, consume more than one because, for some reason, they definitely grow on you.
The Coca-cola (or Coke) should be cold but the Fernet Branca can be at a normal temperature.
1 oz Fernet BrancaÂ® bitters
2 oz Coca-ColaÂ®
Place 2 or 3 ice cubes in a cocktail glass. Pour Fernet Branca over the ice, then holding the glass in a diagonal way, slowly pour the coke.
So to really impress your friends with your knowledge of Argentine culture, or to celebrate Memorial day in style, serve any of our boutique Argentine wines from our Vines of Mendoza online wine shop and this delicious cocktail at your next BBQ and with panache call it an authentic "asado." They will all be duly impressed, guaranteed.
