  • Time icon Ready in 15 minutes

A variation on the hanky-panky that combines gin and sweet red vermouth with a splash of Fernet Branca bitters. This recipe uses a splash of Jägermeister too. A great festive cocktail.


  • 175ml good dry gin
  • 175ml sweet red vermouth (such as Martini Rosso)
  • 40ml Jägermeister
  • Ice cubes
  • 8 x 4cm strips of pared orange peel


  1. Pour all the alcohol into a tall jug and cover with a clean cloth.
  2. When your guests arrive, top up the jug with ice, stir gently for 30 seconds, then strain into 8 small glasses filled with fresh ice (you can use a cocktail shaker for this if you like).
  3. Twist a strip of orange peel over the top of each glass to release the citrus oil, then drop into the cocktails.
