This season of A.V. Cocktail Club focuses on classic cocktails that are easy to make at home. This week, Chicago bartender Laura Kelton shows us the Hanky Panky—if you’re a fan of the negroni, you’ll enjoy this classic gin cocktail that adds minty notes, courtesy of Fernet-Branca.
1.5 oz. London dry gin
1.5 oz. sweet vermouth
1 tsp. Fernet-Branca
In a mixing glass, combine all ingredients. Add ice and stir about 30 seconds to dilute the drink, then strain into glass. Take a piece of orange peel and, using a lighter, hold the flame to the peel as you squeeze it to release its juices over the glass. Garnish with peel and serve.
