Army and Navy Cocktail

The Army and Navy Cocktail first appeared in David A. Embury's Fine Art of Mixing Drinks in 1948.

Embury changed the proportions of the original recipe to this one, which has a higher gin ratio. The result is a delicious, subtle, dry gin cocktail that is very simple to make.

Orgeat syrup is a delicious combination of almonds, sugar, orange flower water and rosewater which is fairly easy to come across these days.

Ingredients for Army & Navy Cocktail

15ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

8ml Orgeat syrup

dash of bitters

lemon twist to garnish


Add all the ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker and shake vigorously until chilled. Strain into a chilled glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
