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:


So there you have it – the “real” hanky-panky … again!

The Hanky Panky - Again

Believe it or not, this one’s a classic!
