Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Hanky-Panky cocktail was the brainchild of Ada Coleman. Her benefactor was Rupert D'Oyly Carte, a member of the family that first produced Gilbert and Sullivan operas in London and that built the Savoy Hotel. When Rupert became chairman of the Savoy in 1903, Ada was given a position at the hotel's American Bar, where she eventually became the head bartender and made cocktails for the likes of Mark Twain, the Prince of Wales, Prince Wilhelm of Sweden, and Sir Charles Hawtrey. Charles Hawtrey was the man for whom "Coley," as Ada Coleman was affectionately called, created the Hanky-Panky cocktail. He was a Victorian and Edwardian actor who mentored Noel Coward.show more
