Japanese Cocktail

Japanese Cocktail.

The Japanese Cocktail originated in the 1860s and is actually just an ordinary Brandy Cocktail in which sugar syrup is replaced by orgeat. Nevertheless, it is something very special.

70 ml Pierre Ferrand 1840 cognac
5 ml Meneau orgeat
1 dash Boker’s bitters

Preparation: Stirred. Sprinkle with lemon zest.

On 19 January 1860, a ship left Yokohama. On board was the first Japanese legation to the United States, with the aim of ratifying a previously negotiated treaty. After a stopover in Hawaii, they reached San Francisco and stayed there for a month before continuing their journey. The journey continued via the Isthmus of Panama to Washington D.C., where there were numerous receptions and tributes. They continued their journey via Baltimore and Philadelphia, reaching New York City on 16 June 1860. For the duration of their two-week stay, the legation stayed at the Metropolitan Hotel. They met numerous personalities and there were many events. They also went shopping and visited concerts, schools, factories, prisons, churches and museums. On 30 June, they set sail and crossed the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, circumnavigating the world with stops in Angola, Batavia and Hong Kong before reaching Edo in November 1860. [1] [2] [3-295] The diaries of embassy members tell a lot about the thoughts and impressions of this journey, also about the fact that the samurai, despite their curiosity, had to refrain from indulging too much in any of the activities in order to preserve their dignity as representatives of their great nation. [2]

David Wondrich writes about the Japanese Cocktail: “Perhaps, along with the Blue Blazer, the only drink invented in Jerry Thomas’s How to Mix Drinks actually invented by him. … In June 1860, the first Japanese legation to the United States finished up their sensational tour with a few weeks in New York. A bunch of dignified, reserved, non-English-speaking Samurai, plus Tommy — well, Tateishi Onojirou Noriyuki, but nobody called him that. A young, frisky English speaker, Tommy was the legation’s legman — in both senses of the word: He had a decided interest in flirting with the ladies (and they with him). If the American journalist who accompanied the legation on the long voyage home is to be believed, Tommy was interested in another American social custom as well, and in this his comrades joined him: “From breakfast to supper, they . . . [kept] the toddy-sticks going with much vivacity.” Their preferred poison? Cocktails. Small wonder: Their New York residence had been the Metropolitan Hotel, just a block away from Jerry Thomas’s “palace” bar at 622 Broadway. I can’t imagine that in their strolls around the neighborhood, they wouldn’t have stopped in to see the Professor for a quick one. And if you were Jerry Thomas, wouldn’t you come up with something special to mark the occasion?” [3-295]

We disagree with this thesis. First of all, neither Tommy nor the rest of the delegation can be shown to have drunk cocktails on their return journey. The New York Times newspaper article, published on 8 October 1860, says from Batavia:

„Our Japanese friends have likewise shared in the pleasures of port, and feast their eyes on the beautiful tropical green that brightens the land, unassisted by the gloomy tints of the Indian Ocean. They whiled away the tedium of the voyage from the Cape in their habitual studious way, fortified by much evenness of temper and a generous table; though some of the officers have been somewhat sorely tried by a decree which forbade them to imbibe cocktails late at night. As their tastes were educated to absorb those bitter sweet mixtures in our own free barroom country, they seemed to regard the prohibition on ship-board as a serious hardship, as perhaps it was, but nevertheless in the day-time, from breakfast to supper, they were permitted to keep the toddy-sticks going with much vivacity, and their health did not suffer, and no doubt their nerves were kept as steady as those potent pacifiers could make them.“ [4]

It says some of the officers (not the delegates), would have been severely tested because a decree forbade them to drink cocktails late at night. As their tastes had been accustomed to it in the American bars, they would have found prohibition on board a serious tribulation, but during the day, between breakfast and dinner, they would have been allowed to do so, and made lively use of it. The statement clearly refers to the officers on board, not the samurai. The journalist also writes nothing about Tommy’s alcohol consumption. There is also the statement from the diaries of the delegation that they restrained themselves in all activities in order to preserve the dignity of their nation. [2] [4]

But regardless of this, no member of the delegation could have visited Jerry Thomas. True, the latter was bar manager at the Metropolitan Hotel and was still working there in the autumn of 1859. [3-26] [5] But he resigned in 1859 to go to London to visit the European continent. [3-29] [6-61] After less than a year he returned to New York. [6-61] He did not open his own bar at 622 Broadway until October of 1860, about 300 yards from the Metropolitan Hotel. [3-29] After a year Jerry Thomas closed this bar again, as he could no longer pay the debts on it, and he moved to San Francisco. [3-32] [6-61] So when the delegation was in New York, this bar did not yet exist, and so they could not have visited it.

The Metropolitan Hotel opened on 1 September 1852 and was already demolished in 1895. It could accommodate 600 guests, had steam-heated rooms and family flats with private sitting rooms. The Leland family, owners of the hotel, hosted the Japanese delegation and tried to provide privacy for the unusually dressed who were followed by the public. [17]

Nevertheless, the Japanese Cocktail was certainly named after the Japanese delegation. Their visit was something Americans took part in. As an example, we cite the search hits that come up for the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. A search for the term “japanese” yields only 8 hits for the year 1858. [7] In 1859 there are 14, [8] in 1860 there are 151, [9] in 1861 still 75, [10] and in 1862 only 22. [11] The topic was omnipresent.

One of them was Tommy. Tommy, or Tateishi Onojirô, was a samurai of 17 or 18 years and the youngest member of the delegation. He took part as an translator-in-training, accompanied by his adoptive father, the official translator Tateishi Tokujûrô. His nickname Tommy is probably due to his youthful age, his attractive appearance and his childhood name Tamehachi. [14] [15]

TOMMY, The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, 12. June 1860, pagee 2.
TOMMY, The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, 12. June 1860, pagee 2. [12]

In the newspapers we read articles like: “Among the Japanese now visiting the country is a youth known as Tommy, who seems to be a lively romantic little fellow, and consequently has become quite a favorite with the ladies. Tommy has had a love adventure in Washington which is thus described by the correspondent of the Tribune.” [12]

Barnum's American Museum. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, 18. July 1860, page 3.
Barnum’s American Museum. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, 18. July 1860, page 3. [13]

Tommy must have been very popular, because already in July 1860 Barnum’s American Museum advertises with him: “Also, life-like Wax Figure of the famous TOMMY, of the Japanese Embassy, with the identical suit of clothes worn by him here.” [13]

Vainty Fair magazine wrote: “From Washington Heights to East Broadway, Tommy is already a household word“. [15]

The fact that he was different from the rest of the delegation was certainly a decisive factor in his popularity with the people. They kept a straight face, but he threw kisses to the people. [15]

There was also a “Tommy Polka”. It was extremely popular in 1860. [15] [16] You can listen to it on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbFBDCmJNCE

It was not only in the newspapers that interest in the samurai was great. On 16 June, there was a tumultuous reception for the group. It was estimated that along the parade route on lower Broadway, 500,000 people cheered the delegation. [15] [21]

Excerpt from The Japanese Embassy . The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, 16. June 1860, page 3.
Excerpt from The Japanese Embassy . The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, 16. June 1860, page 3. [21]

And here, too, Tommy was the attraction par excellence. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported on 16 June: “Everybody appeared to know something about “Tommy”, and the interrogatory “Where are you going?” would in the majority of instances be answered, “To see Tommy.” The ladies particularly were anxious to get a look at the little japanese dandy, and we hope they may all be gratified.” [21]

During their stay in New York City, there were parades, receptions and balls that are said to have cost a total of $82,000, which would be equivalent to at least two and a half million dollars today. [15] [22] But this does not seem to have made much impression on the delegation. For one of the high-ranking delegates, Muragaki Awaji-no-Kami, America was a barbaric country. The cultural differences were certainly huge. Naoyuki Agawa, professor of international affairs at Keio University in Tokyo, said they were unfamiliar with things like carpets and ice cubes. Similarly, at a ball, he said they couldn’t figure out why American men and women jumped around the room together – meaning dancing. [15]

The Japanese Bills, The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, 27. July 1860, page 3.

The cost of the stay was arguably a public nuisance. In July 1860 it is reported: “The Japanese Bills. In the New York Supreme Court yesterday, a motion for an iujunction was made to restrain the payment of the bills contracted by the Aldermen on behalf of the city in the reception of the Japanese Embassy.” [18] One can read much in the newspapers about the extravagance of the celebrations. By way of example, we reproduce a report from 18 December [19] which appeared in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. It gives us a good insight:

That little Bill, The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, 18. December 1860, page 2.
That little Bill, The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, 18. December 1860, page 2. [19]

– „THAT LITTLE BILL. – The tax payers of New York city have at least been allowed to see the little bil run up by the committee of their Board of Alderman for the entertainment of the Japanese Embassy, and a very refreshing sight it is in these tight financial times. The committee, it will be remembered, refudes to publish the items of the bill, but asked for an appropriation to liquidate it, and for that purpose they said that the modest sum of $125,000 would do. But the newspapers raised a row about the figures, and the Aldermen good-naturedly reduced them to to $105,000, protesting, at the same time, that everybody who had anything to do with the transaction was out of pocket. The liberality of the Aldermen was not appreciated, and the newspapers insisted that the items should be forthcoming. The Aldermen compromised again, and said if they were allowed to keep their little bill from the public eye they would take $90,000 and call it square. “The items!” “the items!” was still the cry, and after squirming around for three months, the committee of the Board of Aldermen last night produced the the items, which in the aggregate foot up $82,000, or less than one-third the sum first demanded. Granting that this is correct, was there ever such brazen rascality? But the bill cut down as it has been, is a very pretty document to read, provided you are not taxed to pay it. The Japanese Embassy consisted of 76 person all told, of these four were Embassadors proper, 16 were officers and 56 were servants. For their entertainment $30,000 were appropriated and this sum was deemed to be extravagant. There 76 people enjoyed the hospitality of New York city just fourteen days. The cost for their entertainment, per day, if the $82,000 bill is correct, is about $80 each, or $5 per man per hour – precious Embassadors! But of course it is a very big libel on the Japanese to attribute this extravagance to them. From all accounts, they were modest moderate men all of them, fond of rice, molasses and other cheap saccharine articles. It is probable that chief Embassadors could be boarded at $3 50 a week, and a good thing made of it at that, “Tommy” was in love two-thirds of the time and of course if he hears that the Messrs. Leland have charged him with eating $17 worth per day he will commit hari karu in the most approved Japanese fashion. Of these items as presented last night the Messrs. Leland’s of the Metropolitan Hotel take the largest share – footing up $69,064 05. They commence with the trip on board the steamer Alida, which went to Perth Amboy to meet the distinguished visitors. There were 225 persons collected for dinner, they eat $450 worth, which they washed down with 156 bottles of green seal, (at $2 50 per bottle,) 24 bottles of Sayrac brandy, (at $3 per bottle,) and 15 bottles of St. Lambert claret, (at $1 per bottle.) Making the liquor bill $467. After dinner they smoked just 1000 segars at 9 cents a piece, which makes $90. It will be seen from these items that the city fathers are fond of a really good segar, and have a wholesome dread of light wine, only 15 bottles of claret being got through with. The following is the board bill at the Metropolitan, it proves among a great many other things, that the proprietors of that establishment are just men to keep a hotel:- Retaining 70 rooms for Japanese Embassy . . . $1,650 60; Especial decorations of the room for the the Japanese Ambassadors and officers . . . 1,172 00; Board of four Japanese Ambassadors, private table, 14 days, at $10 . . . 560 00; Board 16 Japanese officers, private table, 14 days, at $10 . . . 2,240 00; Board 56 Japanese attendants, private table, 14 days, at $5 . . . 3,920 00; 24 private parlors, 14 days, at $10 . . . 3,360 00; Washing for the Japanese Embassy . . . 372,51; Wine, liquors and segars . . . 4,686 00; Total . . . $17,910 51. The ball cost $38,000. There were 1700 bottles of Green Seal at $2,50 per bottle drunk at it, besides 2,200 bottles of assorted champaigne at $2; 200 bottles of syrac brandy at $3,00, and 280 bottles of sherry, madeira and hock, at $2. After this the next item excites no surprise, which is one thousand seven hundred and fifty-three dollars for glasses broken and damage done to furniture. This is really moderate; that this drunken crew did not turn the Metropolitan inside out, and saddle a bill of something like $100,000 on the city, shows them to be exceedingly gentle in their cups, and entitles them to the profound consideration of the tax-payers. On the whole the bill is about as fair a sample of Corporation rascality on the other side of the river, as any document that has ever been laid befor a much enduring public.“ [19]

The Green Seal mentioned is a champagne. [20] The bill amounts were considerable. A US dollar from 1860 is worth about $30.79 in 2019. Depending on the category, however, the amount will be different. For food, and let us count spirits among these, the equivalent in 2019 would be as much as $132.01. [22] This meant that a bottle of Green Seal Champagne cost $330 (€290), a bottle of brandy $396 (€317), a bottle of sherry, Madeira or Rhenish white wine $198 (€159) and a bottle of wine about $132 (€106). The cigars, if grouped into the food category, were quite cheap in comparison per piece at $12 (€10.5).

The Japanese Cocktail

The origin of the Japanese Cocktail is not known. However, the period of origin can be narrowed down to the period between 1860, when the delegation visited the USA, and 1862, when the recipe was first published. Since it was first published by Jerry Thomas, one can well imagine that it was Jerry Thomas who developed it, but this is not certain.

Against the background of the newspaper article of 18 December 1860, it becomes clear that the basic spirit of the Japanese Cocktail can only be cognac. This was the only high-proof spirit served at the festivities, even more expensive than champagne, and can thus be considered a sign of exquisite luxury. Orgeat was probably not a common ingredient at the time and thus symbolises the exotic element of the cocktail, just as the Japanese delegation was perceived as something exotic.

As far as the ingredients are concerned, statistically there is actually nothing worth mentioning. It is perhaps interesting that there are different variations. The original from 1862 consists of cognac, orgeat and some bitters. This is basically the same as a traditional Brandy Cocktail, but with the sugar syrup replaced by Orgeat.

Haney’s Steward & Barkeeper’s Manual adds a little lemon juice, but this has no place in a Japanese cocktail. Interestingly, in this recipe the Japanese Cocktail is also filled with scraped ice and decorated with fruit, thus resembling a cobbler.

In 1883, Patsy McDonough suggests using maraschino or curaçao instead of orgeat and thinks that gin could be used instead of cognac. Such a thing, however, is not a Japanese cocktail.

Harry Johnson’s variant from 1888 is interesting, in which cognac is replaced by eau de celeste (Himmelswasser). But this is no longer a Japanese cocktail.

Finally, Jacob Abraham Grohusko’s variant should be mentioned. He mistakenly calls a mixture of rye whiskey, vermouth, grenadine syrup and curaçao a Japanese Cocktail.

Sometimes the Japanese Cocktail is also called the Mikado Cocktail, first in 1895 in the official handbook of the New York Bartenders’ Association. This name also refers to the Japanese delegation, as Mikado is the title of the Japanese emperor, the Tennōs. [27]

After this long article, there is nothing left to do but prepare a Japanese Cocktail while listening to Tommy’s Polka. Cheers and 乾杯 (kanpai)!

About

Hi, I'm Armin and in my spare time I want to promote bar culture as a blogger, freelance journalist and Bildungstrinker (you want to know what the latter is? Then check out "About us"). My focus is on researching the history of mixed drinks. If I have ever left out a source you know of, and you think it should be considered, I look forward to hearing about it from you to learn something new. English is not my first language, but I hope that the translated texts are easy to understand. If there is any incomprehensibility, please let me know so that I can improve it.
