In 2021, Hanky Panky entered the World’s 50 Best Bars list for the first time at number 12, the highest new entry of any bar that year. The bar celebrates Mexico’s traditions and ingredients by using local products, while also getting inspiration from around the world.
Their recently released Passport menu was influenced by the venues’ bartenders’ travels in 2021, when the team decided to overcome the challenges that the bar community faced and brought people together in a time of difficulties, embarking on a series of takeovers. First by opening the doors of their home in Mexico City to friends from the USA, India, South America, and Europe who were not able to work due to their own countries restrictions, and then by traveling overseas themselves.
Inspiration behind Arandas Sunset: “On a sunny afternoon at Arandas, the town in Guadalajara where the Tequila altos is produced, we created a refreshing clarified drink thinking simply of what we would have loved to have in that moment with the ingredients we had available.”
- 50ml Tequila Altos Blanco
- 60ml clarified orange juice
- 15ml lime juice
- 15ml tropical tisane cordial
- Tonic water
Pour Tequila Altos Blanco, clarified orange juice, lime juice, and tropical tisane cordial into a cocktail mixing glass. Stir. Strain over a tall glass with ice. Top with tonic water to taste.
