Rye, Fernet Branca, Bitters, Simple syrup, Lemon peel
Stir and strain down into a double-old fashioned glass. Express the lemon oil and wipe the peel along the glass rim before you drop it in.
This has been served to me with half as much Fernet and 1/4 oz more Rye which was also tasty, but the recipe here has more character and depth.
This may be based on Robert Vermeire's Fernet Cocktail in "Cocktails, How to Mix Them" (1922) - evidently, it was "much appreciated by the Canadians of Toronto."

Had it at drink. Fernet is an acquired taste that I haven't yet acquired.
I like mine with 2/3 oz Fernet and 1/3 oz simple served up with orange or lemon twist.
