Bamboo Cocktail

The Bamboo Cocktail is another classic cocktail that is a variation of the Martini and an excellent before-dinner drink.

The story goes that it was created sometime around the 1890s by Louis Eppinger at the Grand Hotel in Yokohama, Japan. Eppinger was famous in his time for turning around the Grand and mixing many great drinks as well as overseeing culinary menus to which the elite would flock when visiting Japan.

1/2 ounces sherry

Faint aroma of dry sherry make you relax... [Windjammer -at Yokohama china town-]

I first discovered "THE BAMBOO COCKTAIL" from the comic "Bartender". In one story, one gentle man like this cocktail. And I also came to like this cocktail. The taste is not sweet, really dry. But faint aroma of dry sherry and dry vermouth is brilliant!. I think this cocktail is very suitable when you want to drink alone at good bars.

Dry Dry Dry cocktail [Jazz with KAZZ]

I had drunk Bamboo Cocktail many times but I have never asked bartenders which Sherry they selected. This time bartender told me he use TIO PEPE for this cocktail. I have drubk TIO PEPE many times and I know TIO PEPE is very dry. Thus this time O felt "What a dry Bamboo cocktail this is!" I know bamboo cocktails is dry but this TIO PePE based bamboo is really dry. Which dry sherry your favorite bars use to make bamboo cocktail?
