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.


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


  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.


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.
