“This is a twist on the classic Hanky Panky cocktail, using a full bodied aged rum instead of gin,” Mats Lian.
45 ml (1.5 oz) Zacapa 23 rum
Scant 7.5 ml (.25 oz) Luxardo Fernet amaro
3 dashes Adam Elmegirab’s Aphrodite bitters
1 lemon twist, as garnish
Build on a big rock in double old-fashioned glass and stir until cold. Add the garnish.
gaz sez: Wow! The Zacapa, Punt e Mes, and Fernet (Luxardo is a little drier than Branca), come together in harmony well, here—each of them allows the others to be heard without retiring into the background—but it’s the Aphrodite bitters that push this drink over the top and into the realm of super-heroes. This is a keeper.
