This classic cocktail was created in the 1890s by Louis Eppinger, manager of the Grand Hotel, Yokohama, Japan, to serve to visiting dignitaries. The symmetry of this drink is admirable — even two types of bitters, dashed out in equal proportion.
- 1.5 ounces dry sherry
- 1.5 ounces dry vermouth
- 2 dashes orange bitters
- 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
- orange twist
In an ice-filled mixing glass, combine the sherry, vermouth and both bitters. Stir for 20 to 30 seconds until well chilled, then strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with the orange twist before serving.
