Tonia Guffey is head bartender at cocktail bar Dram in Brooklyn, NY.

I named the drink after a song by a band called Beirut. They practice in a space right next to the bar I work in and the song is so elegant, yet a little strange. That’s essentially Fernet to me. It’s a little weird, but absolutely beautiful at the same time. I wanted to make something that had fall flavors as well. I love the way that mint and chocolate work together. I also love the marriage of chocolate and orange, which is commonly found in cooking. That was basically how this drink came about. A balance of sour citrus and soft sweetness is what I was trying to achieve and I think it worked out pretty well.
