Ada Coleman became the second person to hold the post of Head Bartender at the Savoy in 1898. She later created the cocktail for English comedy actor Charles Hawtrey, who asked her for "something with a bit of punch in it". The first time he tasted the results of her hours of experimentation, he replied, "By jove! That's the real hanky panky!" And the name stuck!

What does everyone think?
