Fanciulli Cocktail with Fernet Branca Ice Ball

The origin of the Fanciulli Cocktail is somewhat hazy, but the flavor definitely is not. A reference to the Fanciulli Cocktail was published in 1931 book "Old Waldorf Bar Days," by Albert Stevens Crockett, a book that reminisced about just what the name implies, "days at the Waldorf (hotel) bar," before it later merged with the Astoria and became the "Waldorf-Astoria" that we know of today.
