Cocktail Fridays: The Runt's Ambition Cocktail


For the men with a Napoleon Complex

Friday, May 15, 2015

Napoleon Bonaparte was a stout little man, truth be told, he was actually of average height for a man of his era. But, alas, the French emperor has gone down into history as a man of tiny size but huge ambition. Hence the phrase "Napoleon Complex" generally set aside for shorter men who might overcompensate in other aspects of their lives. 

2 ounces rum
2 ounces gin
2 ounces whiskey
2 ounces port wine
Ice cubes
Serves 2

Shake well with ice and then strain. Use a chilled  cocktail glass. This delicious adult beverage can also be served in a chilled Champagne coupe glass. Of course this glass is said to have gotten it's name from the breast of Empress Josephine, Napoleon's wife. She must have been a busty woman.
