We consider a fractional version of Gauß capillarity energy. A suitable extension problem is introduced to derive a boundary monotonicity formula for local minimizers of this fractional capillarity energy. As a consequence, blow-up limits of local minimizers are shown to subsequentially converge to minimizing cones. Finally, we show that in the planar case there is only one possible fractional minimizing cone, the one determined by the fractional version of Young's law.
