Default Fernet Branca

I cannot believe I bought a bottle of this stuff.

Please tell me you SF cats are doing something other than drinking it straight.

Diplomat,

Of course, straight. It is a fine digestif. Hopefully you did not get the Branca Menta, that is vile stuff. Fernet does take a little getting used to, though.

LEO
Sure. You boys want anything?

RUIZ
Yeah, bring us four fernet.

LEO
Four fernet.

RICKY
No. I'll take a strega.

RUIZ
What, [censored]? You drinking
'the witch' after dinner?

RICKY
Yeah. That fernet tastes like tar.
My grandfather tried to give me that.

RUIZ
Some [censored] guineas he sent me.
It's midnight and the [censored]'s
ordering an apertif.

RICKY
It's a digestif.

LEO
Strega's an apertif.

RICKY
Fine. Bring me a Cynar.

RUIZ
Nigger, please. Don't even order
that artichoke [censored]. West side
guineas. Forget the drinks, Leo. We
gotta roll.

Made rules,
El Diablo

Dear Masked Man,

it smells like menthol and tastes like pain. But then again, so did a lot of things when I first tried them.

By the way, good quote.

diablo there is zero reason to use QR when you are the first reply to a thread. there is only one person you could be replying to. it is a huge waste of time to type out the "dear poster" thing.

Voltron,

What is your objection to a simple pleasantry? This forum is already showing a much-needed and appreciated increase in civility and decorum since the introduction of QR.

Wishing you the best,
El Diablo

Boris: I have not tried it w/ soda. I will have to give that a try.

Diplomat: FYI, the traditional Fernet back is a little ginger ale, but we usually skip that.

All: The forum censor is funny.

Good drinking,
El Diablo
