East India Cocktail

A Victorian-Era Tiki Drink

When the sun didn’t set on the British Empire and they were busy ruling over the East Indies, fantasy surrounded that foreign land. Capturing the imagination of a bartending Yank, East India became the inspiration for this Victorian-age cocktail.  e  rst recipe was published in 1882, and its sweet fruit  avor is reminiscent of what we know today as Tiki Cocktails. The recipe has changed a bit since  rst being published, but here at Napa Valley Distillery, we love to rediscover a cocktail’s origins. We have cra ed this oak-infused cocktail from California Brandy, housemade Orange Curaçao, real Blackberry Syrup, and Blood Orange Bitters. It’s easy to enjoy! Just shake with ice and serve up with a lemon twist.
