Jules Rimet

John Perry Yates | Brooklyn, NY

While not native to Argentina, Argentines love bittersweet Fernet Branca and drink more of it than any other nation in the world. So popular is the Milanese amaro that there is now a distillery in Buenos Aries. Created by illustrator John Perry Yates for the 2014 World Cup match final between Argentina and Germany, this mano-a-mano recipe is nothing more than a picon-bière in which hearty, chocolatey Doppelbock stands up to Fernet’s bitter kick. “The Jules Rimet Cup” was the name of the original World Cup trophy—it was stolen in Brazil in 1983 and has never been found.


Serving: 1

  • 1 1/2 ounces Fernet Branca
  • 8 ounces Doppelbock beer

  1. Add Fernet and beer to a chilled tulip glass or beer mug.
  2. Stir gently to combine.
