Hanky Panky

Hanky Panky.

The Hanky Panky is a Martini variation that is magically transformed into something new by the addition of a little Fernet.

30 ml Rutte Dry Gin
30 ml Antica Formula vermouth
5 ml Gagliardo Fernet Radicale

Preparation: Stirred. Sprinkle with an orange zest.

Ada Coleman about 1920.

The Hanky Panky was created in the American Bar of London’s Savoy Hotel. Ada Coleman, born in 1875, thought it up. She started working in the Savoy’s bar in July 1903, was the first head bartender of the American Bar and worked there until 1925. She died in 1966 and the Hanky Panky is her most famous drink.

[1] [8] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] Imbibe magazine ranks her among the 25 most influential people in bar culture. [12]

History of origins

Charles Hawtrey about 1915.
Charles Hawtrey about 1915. [10]

In 1925, she was quoted in The People magazine as saying: „The late Charles Hawtrey … was one of the best judges of cocktails that I knew. Some years ago, when he was overworking, he used to come into the bar and say, “Coley, I am tired. Give me something with a bit of punch in it.” It was for him that I spent hours experimenting until I had invented a new cocktail. The next time he came in, I told him I had a new drink for him. He sipped it, and, draining the glass, he said, “By Jove! That is the real hanky-panky!” And Hanky Panky it has been called ever since.”[1][8][12][13] [16] [17]

Even though the Hanky Panky was invented by Ada Coleman, this cocktail is nothing really new, but something that can be related to older drinks. On the one hand, the Hanky Panky is certainly a descendant of the Martini Cocktail. On the other hand, vermouth and Fernet were already combined in 1889 in the “Vermouth de Turin au Fernet Branca”. Equal parts are mixed with seltzer water. [18] It doesn’t take long before the water is removed. William Schmidt prepared his “L’Appetit” in 1892 with two parts vermouth, one part Fernet and a slice of orange. [19]

Period of origin

The actor Sir Charles Henry Hawtrey was born in 1858 and died on 30 July 1923. [11] Thus we know that the Hanky Panky cannot have been created after 1923. Unfortunately, Ada Coleman does not give an exact year of origin. She merely speaks of “some years ago”. This can be taken to mean many things, but we interpret this period as three to five years. One suspects that Ada would otherwise have spoken of the last or penultimate year, or would have said something like “during the war” or “shortly after”. We deduce that the Hanky Panky was probably created around 1920.

It may be interesting to know that a musical called Hanky-Panky was performed on Broadway in 1912. Perhaps this event inspired Charles Hawtrey’s shout-out, as Tristan Stephenson surmises. He dates the origin of the Hanky Panky Cocktail to the 1910s. He justifies this by saying that, on the one hand, according to the recipe, a London Dry Gin should be used instead of an Old Tom, and on the other hand, in the first years of the twentieth century, the trend arose to prepare a Martini from dry gin and dry vermouth. This statement is based on false assumptions, and we have already addressed the question of which gin was used in our articles on the Martini Cocktail. Tristan Stephenson further narrows down the time of origin to between 1910 and 1914, on the grounds that Charles Hawtrey could hardly have overworked himself during the First World War. Why not, in fact? We do not think his argument is well founded. As explained, we are more likely to arrive at a date around 1920. [17]

The term “hanky-panky”

The term hanky-panky needs to be explained. Webster understands it to mean “questionable or underhand activities or a sexual dalliance“. The former meaning could be attested as early as 1841. But this is certainly not the meaning Charles Hawtrey had in mind. The Oxford Dictionary also defines hanky-panky as „Behaviour, in particular sexual or legally dubious behaviour, considered improper but not seriously so.”, but points out that the term probably originated in the mid-19th century as an alteration of hopey-pokey. Hokey-pokey in American stood for a deception or trickery, a meaning that in the late 19th century probably derived from hocus-pocus, whose origin in turn can be found in the early 17th century and was used as a magic formula by magicians. [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [17]

So by hanky-panky we must mean something magical in our context. We have found an explanation for the origin of the term, according to which about 150 years ago British magicians would have waved handkerchiefs (also called hanky in English) to distract the audience from what trickery they were performing with the other hand. This practice was so common that the use of a handkerchief was associated with any clandestine or artful act. It is assumed that just as magicians used the formula hocus-pocus, a rhyming word was also added to hanky, so that it became hanky-panky. [7] [8]

Be that as it may, for us this last explanation fits perfectly. We had already tried the Hanky Panky several times, but somehow we never really found access to it. Especially Frank Arne, as someone who has his problems with Fernet, had a hard time with it. With the right Fernet, however – in our case Fernet Radicale from Gagliardo – the ” Sweet Martini” – because that’s what Hanky Panky actually is – magically transforms into something extraordinary. The flavours fit together perfectly and you almost want to suspect some kind of magic behind it. One can understand Charles Hawtrey’s exclamation, because this cocktail is then really hanky-panky, that is, created by magic.

The recipes

Difford’s Guide talks about the original recipe being greatly improved by the addition of a little orange juice. This improvement, it says, came about in 2010, and it is not known who came up with it. [1] We clearly disagree. With the right ingredients and the right proportions, there is nothing to improve on the original recipe. It is perfect.

The combination of gin, vermouth and fernet does not only appear in recipes as Hanky Panky. Although the Hanky Panky is probably the first cocktail to be devised from these ingredients, as it was created a few years before 1925, probably around 1920, there are cocktails in the books with the same ingredients but under a different name. These are:

  • With orange gin, French vermouth and fernet: Kemple House Cocktail (1927), Majestic (1930, alternatively with Italian vermouth).
  • with gin, Italian vermouth and fernet: Branca (1937) Cure For Headache (1937, 1937, 1937) , Fernet Branca Cocktail (1930, 1933, 1933, 1934, 1934, 1938, 1944, 1948, 1949, 1953, 1956, 1972, 1976, 1977) , Fernet No. 2 (1934), Fernet Pick Me Up (1965), Fifth Avenue (1956, 1977), Fifty-Fifty (1929, alternatively with French vermouth), Futurity Cocktail (1953), Traveller (1937), Ulises Cocktail (1947), Villa Inda Cocktail (1961).
  • with gin, French vermouth and fernet: Midnight Passion (1937),
  • with gin, Italian vermouth, fernet and egg white: John. (1937)

However, these names are sometimes understood to mean something quite different. The Fernet Cocktail can also be another mixed drink with fernet (for example, Harry McElhone’s 1930 cocktail consisting of vermouth, fernet and curaçao, or Eddie Clarke’s 1963 cocktail consisting of brandy, vermouth and fernet). We have already written about the Futurity Cocktail. A Fifth Avenue in 1977 at Stan Jones is also a layered drink of crème de cacao, apricot brandy and cream. However, since the Hanky Panky is the oldest cocktail made of gin, Italian vermouth and fernet, we do not go into these other drinks in detail or examine them exhaustively, and whether their designation is commonly understood to mean something quite different. The previously mentioned examples are only to be understood as examples.

It is noticeable that the Hanky Panky only appears eleven times in our list before the year 2000 and is thus in the minority. It seems to have become a classic and better known only in recent times.

About

Hi, I'm Armin and in my spare time I want to promote bar culture as a blogger, freelance journalist and Bildungstrinker (you want to know what the latter is? Then check out "About us"). My focus is on researching the history of mixed drinks. If I have ever left out a source you know of, and you think it should be considered, I look forward to hearing about it from you to learn something new. English is not my first language, but I hope that the translated texts are easy to understand. If there is any incomprehensibility, please let me know so that I can improve it.
