There are several accounts of the origins of the Bamboo Cocktail. One claims the name comes from Bob Cole's 1902 hit song "Under the Bamboo Tree". William Boothby, a noted bartender of the day, says in his 1908 book "The World's Drinks" that the drink was created and named by Louis Eppinger, at the Grand Hotel in Yokohama, Japan. Either way, this is a cocktail that contains no base spirit that we think you will enjoy.
Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
Garnish with an orange twist.
