Branchinotto is a simple thirst-quenching recipe based on a mix of chinotto – the precious citrus fruit with an intense aroma and bitter sweet flavour – and the unique taste of Fernet Branca with its 27 herbs, roots and spices sourced from four continents.
BRANCAMILANO is a newcomer into the world of Branca cocktails. It is the fruit of the exceptional teamwork of Branca’s bartenders, who, thanks to their vibrant occupation, are always at the center of the ever-changing tastes and trends of Milan’s lively cafés and bars, as well as of the city’s dynamic cultural life.
To incorporate all of Milan into a single cocktail was not an easy task to accomplish.
Branca’s bartenders have submitted several recipes to the University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo – an institution of a world-class excellence in food & beverage sector – which, with the due diligence, conducted a careful and technical study of both the sensory profiles of the submitted cocktails and their overall presentation.
Only 3 cocktails managed to make the cut of the professional scrutiny and to reach the final phase of the examination. Here, the special tasting committee, which included even Mayor of Milan, Giuseppe Sala among its members, made the final choice that eventually fell on BRANCAMILANO.
This new drink by Branca, has the three of company’s most iconic products at heart: 1,5 cl Fernet-Branca, 6 cl Antica Formula and 1,5 cl Stravecchio Branca. It is, thus, foreseen to become a classic Milanese aperitif for its excellence.
Fernet Cup n 1 is a refreshing and spicy cocktail, perfect to exalt the taste and the qualities of Fernet-Branca.
The addiction of liquid sugar, lime and ginger beer exalts in an unmistakable way its unique bouquet thanks to the union of 27 herbs, roots and spices from four continents. For the most virtuous bartenders, the magic ingredient consists of 2 cl of egg whites: the result is a cocktail with a more enveloping flavor and an even more inviting appearance.
