Embassy Cocktail Recipe

Embassy-Cocktail-Recipe The Bottle Club

Brandy and rum come together in spectacular fashion in the Embassy cocktail. It's a wonderful classic drink recipe from the 1930s that was featured at Hollywood's Embassy Club.

The private venue was designed by restaurateur Adolph "Eddie" Brandstatter as a respite for movie stars who wanted a quiet night out without swarms of fans. Apparently, it backfired because business dropped considerably at his most popular establishment, the Café Montmartre, which is credited with starting the entire Hollywood nightclub scene.

The cocktail itself is almost identical to the Boston sidecar with just a couple differences. Both cocktails include brandy and rum, though the Embassy specifically calls for Jamaican rum rather light rum, as well as Cointreau. The three spirits are poured equally in both recipes and the lime juice remains the same. This drink does include bitters and a lime wedge, where the other does not. They're small changes and it's interesting to compare the two cocktails to experience their impact.
