Bitter Obrero: the most Argentine drink

Can there be a more Argentine drink than the coke fernet? The Santafesino Amargo Obrero takes the bench against the Cordovan giant.


When it comes to creating a national cocktail, no one has managed to overcome the popularity of the Cordovan symbol: the coca fernet. However, before its massification, the fernet was another appetizer, like the Bitter Worker.

El Amargo Obrero is a drink invented in the city of Rosario, Santa Fe, in 1888, as a mixture of aromatic mountain herbs. What postulates it as a “drink of the people” is its original purpose: to rise in bitterreaction before the sweet drinks taken by the bourgeois classes. They say that its creators were adept at the time very present anarcho-syndicalism and that it was taken by the Peronism because, from its label, it alludes to the roots of the labor movement.

This rich vermouth was missing for several years. His place was won by the aforementioned fernet, the Gancia, the Cinzano and Campari.

Reinvented in 2012, within a larger company, today it returns to the burden with everything, and its pretensions are the usual: to fill the social gatherings of the neighborhoods. It is a laburante drink, made by and for laburantes, say its fans.

Some make this delicious drink mixing it with soda flavor of cola, others with grapefruit drink. Others are encourage him to enter him alone, with ice. The truth is that nothing happens: your alcoholic percentage does not exceed 20%.

Although he doesn't have much science, we leave you a suggestion to serve a Bitter Worker at your daily table .
