Bubbaloo Cocktail Recipe

BUBBALOO COCKTAIL Recipe

The Bubbaloo cocktail. The name comes from a Mexican chicken dish with peach. The bartender Euclides López proves that Pisco can also find its place in a relatively classic cocktail. The pisco cocktail could be from the 1920s or 1930s. But at that time there were few bartenders who mixed with pisco. That’s why Euclides López quickly created his own drink in 2009 with vermouth, lots of basic spirit, a liqueur and bitters. An ideal alternative for everyone who likes sweet Manhattan.

INGREDIENTS

  • 60 ml/ 2 oz. Pisco
  • 15 ml/ ½ oz. sweet Vermouth
  • 15 ml/ ½ oz. Apricot Brandy
  • 3 dashes Amargo Chuncho Bitters

METHOD

  1. Pour all ingredients into a mixing glass filled with ice cubes.
  2. Stir well until well-chilled.

Bamboo Cocktail Recipe

Bamboo Cocktail

The creation of the Bamboo cocktail is attributed to the bartender Louis Eppinger – who is considered one of the fathers of Japanese bartending. Accordingly, the drink was first mixed by Eppinger in the 1890s in the Grand Hotel in Yokohama.

INGREDIENTS

  • 45 ml/ 1 ½ oz. dry Sherry
  • 45 ml/ 1 ½ oz. Vermouth dry
  • 2 dashes of orange bitters

METHOD

  1. Pour all ingredients into a mixing glass filled with ice cubes.
  2. Stir well until well-chilled.
  3. Strain into a chilled coupe glass.
  4. Garnish with a orange twist.

NOTES

While I recommend using equal proportions of sherry and vermouth in the preparation and older recipes suggest the ratio 2: 1, the original recipe calls for a mixing ratio of sherry and vermouth of 3: 1. These are placed in a mixing glass with ice together with 2 dashes orange bitters and stirred. In some recipes, the addition of 2 dashes Angostura bitters is also recommended.
