About The Cocktail

Originally created for the late Sir Charles Hawtrey, an English actor whose promiscuity was only out weighed by his eccentricities. As a self taught actor, singer and dancer, he famously hated giving autographs and once threw a vase at a nurse from his hospital bed for requesting his signature shortly before his demise. Bartender Ada Coleman named the cocktail after Hawtrey took a sip and exclaimed “By Jove! That is the real hanky-panky!”.

Gimlet

About The Cocktail

The first whispers of the Gimlet appeared in 1953 in Raymond Chandlers book ‘The Long Goodbye’. Its name has also been linked to Rear-Admiral Sir Thomas Desmond Gimlette who would add Gin to the Lime juice he’d administer to sailors in order to ward of scurvy. Gin and Navy have a long and complex relationship, the term Navy Strength Gin was actually created after Sailors would test the strength of their alcohol by mixing it with gunpowder. If the gunpowder then refused to light, they then knew that they’d received weak and therefore subpar Gin. You don’t want to come between an Old Salt and his Gin.

  • 2 oz Desgin Gin
  • 1 oz Lime Juice
  • ½ oz Simple Syrup

Garnish

  • 1 Lime Peel

Process
