Blackbird's Dirty Black Summer
Fernet and... Miller High Life? You heard right. Bar manager Matt Grippo's new guilty pleasure cocktail ($8) on Blackbird's latest menu is a combo of Mexican Fernet Vallet, lime, coriander and a healthy splash of Miller High Life, with an accompanying mini-bottle to down or top off the cocktail, as the case may be. It goes down so light and easy, with Fernet's bitter bite softened by the joys of cheap beer.
