There is no doubt that the Japanese Cocktail has been around for quite some time since the first assemblage of cocktail recipes in the US was Jerry Thomas' bartender's guide: How to Mix Drinks, which was published in 1862. Although the Japanese Cocktail has nothing Japanese in it, it may have been named after the well-publicized Japanese mission that visited the U.S. in 1860. This cocktail, which is nice, delicate, and subtle, yet boasts a rich complexity from the cognac and a deep sweetness from the orgeat, is an excellent combination of these flavors.

Don't forget to see what other drinks you can make with the ingredients you already have in your bar.
