Flashback Friday: Vesper Bombs

After hearing about Vesper Bombs for so long, it was great to actually be in Vegas during an epic Vesper Bombs session at Vesper. For $5, you get a shot of Fernet-Branca upturned in a glass of ginger beer. Pull the shot glass out and let it mix before downing the thing.

I was with a group of bartenders from around the country. The SF ones sniffed a bit about mixing the Fernet. The lore goes you drink the shot then chase it with ginger beer, but it’s never mixed. So in their eyes, this was an abomination (pun intended).

Ah well, it was still good.
