Fergus Henderson's Dr. Henderson

The St. John Founder Shares a Bracing Cocktail to Revive and Restore

According to St. John’s chef and owner Fergus Henderson, a remedy taught to him by his father is the best way to cure what ails you. Dubbed the Dr. Henderson, the concoction is, in the gourmand’s words, “more than a cocktail––it has miraculous powers that can bring you back from the edge.” Whether the patient in question is suffering the after-effects of the night before or an overzealous meal, the herbaceous drink is best suited to tea time: “when you have had a good lunch and a good supper is looming,” he says. What's more, Henderson offers the recipe with a guarantee: "This drink works. The Fernet Branca has magic powers and puts any troubled organ to sleep, while the crème de menthe makes you feel like you’ve brushed your teeth."
