While I was not planning on having a third cocktail at Drink, Kitty Amann showed up and wanted to do a round of Plymouth Gin drinks; therefore, bartender Misty Kalkofen asked what I would like. When I gave some thought to what gin drink I wanted, I remembered spotting a bottle of Bonal, a gentian and quinine-flavored aromatized wine, and thought about what drinks would work well with Bonal substituted for sweet vermouth. Since I had a Martinez recently, my mind jumped to the Hanky Panky. When I announced my drink choice, it made Misty rather happy. Perhaps it was because it used Bonal and Fernet Branca which Misty adores, or perhaps it was because I summoned her LUPEC name (all of the members have aliases named after cocktails). Kitty liked the idea of the Bonal-Plymouth Gin Hanky Panky so much that she ordered one herself!
