The Oppenheim Cocktail is one of those classic vintage drinks that continues to impress.
With a simple list of ingredients (bourbon, grenadine and vermouth) it’s an easy and simple cocktail with a great taste for those times when complexity isn’t something you are interested in.
The Oppenheim Cocktail is very similar to the Manhattan, another popular drink from days gone by and is essentially a Manhattan with grenadine. Of course when you put it in a sweet vintage bird glass, it takes on a life of it’s own and become something far cooler!
The recipe is below.
