This is one of Japan’s original cocktails, dating back to the mid-1800s. The Bamboo was created by Louis Eppinger, a German bartender at the Grand Hotel in Yokohama. Well described by cocktail historian David Wondrich, “The Bamboo looks like a cocktail, tastes like a cocktail, and punches like a six-year-old.”
Another easy drinking sherry cocktail, the Adonis swaps out the dry vermouth for sweet vermouth.
SHERRY, Preferably Fino sherry
SIMPLE SYRUP, Recommended if slight sweetness is desired
