Mike and Kenneth deep dive on all things Fernet, the bitter Italian subcategory of elixirs. Discussed: its popularity in Argentina, the closely held secret ingredients, American versions of Fernet, and plenty of cocktail recipes. They also begin the episode discussing the unlikely resurgence in popularity for the Gibson cocktail, along with a recipe for pickled pearl onions.
For Booze News, Kenneth goes over what one creative Napa winery is doing with their smoky grapes, and how PayPal is throwing the longest and wildest remote work Christmas party. The Florida Files also returns with a Trump-induced golf cart crash.
