il Porcellino is known for their more than a dozen takes on Italy’s most iconic cocktail (which you can enjoy during happy hour!), but there’s one that stands out as a favorite: the Fernet Negroni. This iteration leans into its bitterness with extra Campari rounded out with Fernet-Branca and Cynar, an artichoke amaro.
