A slight variation on the “Japanese Cocktail”, try them both and see which one you prefer.
An elegant drink that was created in the 1890s by Louis Eppinger, manager of the Grand Hotel in Yokohama, Japan. The recipe includes both orange and Angostura bitters which gives the cocktail a unique flavour and works perfectly with the dry sherry and dry vermouth.
It is thought that a lady called Audrey Saunders, owner of the Pegu Club in New York City and former bartender at Bemelmans Bar in New York′s Carlyle Hotel created the Earl Grey Martini. Gin and Earl Grey tea are combined to make this unusual and rather sophisticated cocktail that is sure to be a hit with your friends. The UK is a nation of tea lovers and gin lovers, so this Earl Grey Martini cocktail is the perfect combination.
