The Wiley Daddy Cocktail by Terry Cermak

Mon, Aug 29, 22

For Father’s Day, we take a twist on the famous “Hanky Panky” cocktail, created for actor Charles Hawtrey at the infamous Savoy Hotel. Basically a variation on a Martinez, here we are substituting gin with a special release. Belvedere Heritage 176 is a vodka blended with a malted rye spirit, a technique steeps and heats the rye, adding complexity and depth. Think of it as a love child from the Martinez and a Manhattan…

1 1/2 oz Belvedere Heritage 176

1 1/2 oz  Carpano Antica vermouth

2-3 drops  Fernet Branca
