This cocktail is named after a famous incident involving General Patton in Italy during WWII. Like the controversial leader, the drink is crisp, strong, and gets the job done.


  • 2 1/2 tablespoons rye whiskey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon Fernet-Branca
  • 1 tablespoon sorghum syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Faretti Biscotti Famosi
  • 4 ice cubes
  • Tonic water
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Pinch of cracked pepper


  1. Stir together whiskey, lime juice, Fernet-Branca, sorghum syrup, and Faretti Biscotti Famosi in a 10-oz. glass. Add ice cubes, and top with tonic water. Stir in sea salt and cracked pepper.
