Happy Friday, everyone, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple, yet delicious libations. Though spring may be the time for fruity and floral cocktails, I’m feeling a bit bitter, and would therefore like to introduce you to my good friend Ferrari & Soda.

This drink can be a bit polarizing, but I think it’s a taste worth acquiring. If you’re a fan of super dark chocolate, gin, and bitter greens and herbs, this may be your new fave. Comprised of equal parts Campari and Fernet Branca, it’s bitter, bracing, and somewhat life-affirming.
I already drink a lot of Campari, but find Fernet to be a little much on its own. Pairing the two together somehow smooths out both of them. Fernet’s minty, aggressive nature gets tempered by Campari’s citrusy notes, and the drink becomes something that is both invigorating and stomach-soothing. It’s one of those drinks that works brilliantly as an aperitif or degestif, and it’s a cinch to make.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 1/2 ounces Fernet Branca
1 1/2 ounces Campari
Soda water to top
Fill a glass (either a lowball or highball will do) with ice and pour in your Fernet and Campari. Give everything a little stir and top with soda water. If you want to get really fancy—and add an ingredient—squeeze a strip of zest over the drink for a little extra brightness.
