The Fernandito, also know as Fernet con coca, gained popularity in the late 20th century. Before then Fernet, an Italian amaro, had been traditionally enjoyed as an aperitif or a digestif. The cocktail is believed to have come out of Córdoba, Argentina. While its exact origin is unknown it was likely created as a softer version of Fernet and soda water.
It joins another spirit and soda classic, the 7 and 7, made with Segram’s 7 whiskey and 7 Up. If you’re looking for a more sophisticated Fernet drink look no further than the Hanky Panky.
