The story of the Midnight Stinger

Its history is rooted in the creative flair of Sam Ross, a bartender at Attaboy in New York City. This cocktail is celebrated for its harmonious combination of bourbon’s warmth and Fernet-Branca’s herbal bitterness, balanced with the freshness of lemon juice.

It is a perfect digestif that can be served after a hearty meal. For many of you, the idea of Fernet Branca may seem strange. But I recommend you give this twist a try. Whiskey Sour fans in specific should like the Midnight Stinger.
