If you blog about cocktails, then someday this day will come.
What day is it, you ask?
It’s the day you forget you’ve already done a cocktail and go ahead and write an entire post about a cocktail you’ve previously posted about. #Whoops.
I considered scrapping this post, but decided against it. This time we’re using Tanqueray and darn it, I think the pictures came out great. So I’m going to go ahead and share them with you anyway. #SorrynotSorry
The Hanky Panky may have a goofy name, but it really is a great drink and a true classic. As I mentioned back in February, the name supposedly has nothing to do with what you’re thinking – it’s named after the customer’s exclamation when first tasting it:
“BY JOVE! THAT IS THE REAL HANKY-PANKY.”
So there you have it – the “real” hanky-panky … again!
- 1 1/2 oz London Dry Gin (We used Tanqueray)
- 1 1/2 oz Sweet Vermouth
- 2 dashes Fernet Branca
- Add all ingredients to a mixing glass and stir well with ice.
- Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with an orange peel
