Hanky Panky
Two cocktails
Adapted from Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails by Ted Haigh I added a dash of orange bitters, which took the edge off the drinks a bit.
3 ounces gin
3 ounces sweet vermouth
3 dashes Fernet Branca
optional: 2 dashes orange bitters
2 strips orange zest
1. Chill 2 cocktail glasses in the freezer.
2. Partially fill a small pitcher with ice. Add the gin, vermouth, Fernet Branca, and orange bitters, if using. Stir well, until the mixture is very cold – about 1 minute.
3. Strain the mixture into the cocktail glasses and garnish with strips of orange zest.
