Hocus Pocus Cocktail Recipe

The Hocus Pocus Cocktail is adapted from the Hanky Panky, a sweet 50/50 martini created by Ada Coleman, head bartender at the Savoy Hotel in London. The Hocus Pocus balances out sweet vermouth and orange curacao liqueur with a touch of bittersweet Fernet Branca. Light and fragrant, this cocktail is a great way to start a spooky night in with friends!

Hocus Pocus by the Dutch rock band Focus was a chart-topper on both sides of the Atlantic in 1971, famous for its yodeling, whistling, accordion, and flute.
