    Well my fellow cocktail enthusiasts... call me blind but i do not see a cocktail thread anywhere within this forum so i thoguth why not go ahead and start one. SUmmer is here and tis getting extremely hot out there.. What are the more exciting cocktails you guys like.. Ill start the ball rolling with the fabulous HANKY PANKY! A london classic.:bowdown:

    Ada Coleman became the second person to hold the post of Head Bartender at the Savoy in 1898. She later created the cocktail for English comedy actor Charles Hawtrey, who asked her for "something with a bit of punch in it". The first time he tasted the results of her hours of experimentation, he replied, "By jove! That's the real hanky panky!" And the name stuck!

    2 PARTS Beefeater London Dry Gin
    2 PARTS Italian vermouth
    2 DASH Fernet Branca
    SHAKE All ingredients over ice
    STRAIN Into a chilled cocktail glass
    SQUEEZE A freshly cut orange peel on top

    interesting topic

    I'm a manhattan man myself. Couple cherries (they soak up the alcohol :yum: ), and a bit more on the vermouth side.

    I am not much of a mixologist however
