The embassy cocktail is one of the many cocktails made in the 1930’s that are named after where it was created. Specifically, the drink was invented at Hollywood’s Embassy Club. Brandy and rum is traditionally mixed in many drinks, that are often associated with holidays. “Nogs” are the premier example of this mixture.

Regardless, the Embassy may not be ordered consistently these days, but is an homage to the 1930’s and still holds an air of sophistication, even if it wasn’t as popular as its highball counterparts. In terms of taste, the Embassy is a great combination of sweet and sour, with the bitters of course adding a bit of “bitter”. It certainly has a “flavor” for everyone.


  • ¾ ounce of brandy
  • ¾ ounce of Jamaican rum
  • ¾ ounce of Cointreau orange liqueur
  • ½ ounce of lime juice
  • Dash of angostura bitters
  • Lime wedge
  • Ice


  1. Pour the ingredients, including ice, into a cocktail shaker.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  4. Add the lime wedge as a garnish.


  • Cocktail shaker
  • Cocktail glass

The Embassy cocktail is a brandy-based cocktail, which isn’t too popular these days, considering the popularity of alternatives such as martinis, vodka-based drinks, or other cocktail options. While the lime wedge is the go-to garnish, an orange zest often serves as an alternative for those who prefer orange over lime. Interestingly enough, a similar cocktail was created around the same time that has many same ingredients – and that is the Chicago cocktail. While this would normally not be notable, one of the earliest places that the Chicago cocktail was introduced was actually an Embassy Club – in London! Regardless, the Embassy is great for brandy lovers, or simply those who feel like transporting to the 1930s for a moment. If you’re in the mood for a classic cocktail that is different, whether you are trying to impress a date or simply want a change, try out the Embassy!
