This month’s Buzzed History’s featured cocktail is the Hanky-Panky. The Hanky-Panky was the brainchild of Ada Coleman known as Coley, who began as a bartender at the Savoy Hotel in 1903. It is a variation on the sweet martini, inasmuch as it calls for gin and sweet vermouth, but Coley’s secret ingredient was Fernet-Branca, a bitter Italian digestivo.

Drink Special: Hanky-Panky $7
