Darlinghurst neighbourhood bar Bitter Phew is teaming up with Italian amaro distiller Fernet Branca to bring you a week-long festival of aromatic cocktails. Think signature drinks, plus creative burgers and at least a couple of big parties.

Not all that familiar with Fernet Branca? It's an aromatic spirit whose story begins way back in 1845 — with a family recipe and a team of expert distillers at Fratelli Branca Distillery in Milan. More than 40 herbs, spices and blossom go into the digestivo, including saffron, myrrh, rhubarb, aloe and camomile. Even better, rumour has it that it can prevent hangovers.

Kicking off on Monday, December 2, Bitter Phew's celebrations will involve a five-strong cocktail list, from the straight-forward Fernet Branca with Coke or Campari to the Hanky Panky, featuring ginger beer and lime, and the Toronto, containing gin and sweet vermouth. Alternatively, you can have it in a boilermaker or straight from the tap, either neat or on ice. Plus, BL Burgers will be chipping in with food, serving up a Fernet-inspired burger.

If you're looking to celebrate with more than just a drink, swing by on Friday, December 6, for the Fernet Branca x Bitter Phew House Party, and on Sunday, December 8, for the Hospo Party.
