Fernet con coca, Fernuco, Fernacho, Ferloncho, Fercola, Fefi, Fernando
Very popular in Argentina where the combination of fernet & Coke is as much a staple as the G&T is in England. The drink is most identified with the Argentinian province of Córdoba where legend has it that a bartender by the name of Oscar "el Negro" Becerra mixed and served the Fernandito in the 1970s, although others say it dates from the 1950s.
Realising the Fernandito's growing popularity, in the 1990s, Fratelli Branca and the Coca-Cola Company launched a joint national advertising campaign in Argentina to help drive the drink's popularity.
One serving of Fernandito contains 141 calories.
