The-Empire-Cocktail-version-2

An Empire of a cocktail for The Happy Hour

The-Empire-Cocktail-version-2Back in the 30′s, concocting cocktails established itself as an art. This phenomena was engaging all popular bars and restaurants in a constant contest to come up with new, successful mixed drinks which gained them attention even in the local press. In that era (between 1930 – 1933) Empire State Building was built and the colossus quickly became an erect emblem of “the city that never sleeps.” Then, of course, the emblem needed its own tribute and that’s how the Empire cocktail was born.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 oz gin (30 ml)
  • 1/2 oz Calvados or any other apple brandy (15 ml)
  • 1/2 oz apricot brandy (15 ml)
  • 6-8 ice cubes
  • 1 maraschino cherry

INSTRUCTIONS

Pour the drinks together with plenty of ice in the mixing glass. Mix well. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with the maraschino cherry.

ENJOY!
