Embassy Cocktail

The Embassy Cocktail is an old classic that dates back to the 1930s and the Embassy Club in Hollywood. Like 1930s Hollywood, it has a certain sophisticated glamor. The taste strikes a great balance between sweet, bitter and sour. It’s one of those fairly strong drinks that manages to go down very smoothly.

This is a great drink recipe for unwinding after a long day. It’s not the right drink if you’re gearing up for an energetic evening – it’s perfect to relaxing and shrugging off the stress of the day and enjoying a somewhat quiet evening.
