Admiral Cocktail Recipe

The Admiral cocktail is a classic gin-based cocktail that has been around since at least the early 1900s. It's named after the British Navy Admiral Edward Russell, who fought in the Battle of La Hogue in 1692. The cocktail is typically made with gin, lemon juice, orange bitters, and a small amount of sugar. Some variations also call for the addition of curacao or triple sec. The cocktail is typically served in a chilled glass and garnished with a twist of lemon or a slice of orange.

Here's how to make an Admiral Cocktail:


  • 2 oz gin
  • 1 oz triple sec
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters


  1. In a cocktail shaker, combine gin, triple sec, lemon juice, and a dash of Angostura bitters.
  2. Fill the shaker with ice and shake well.
  3. Strain the mixture into a chilled cocktail glass.
  4. Garnish with a lemon twist, if desired.
  5. Serve and enjoy!

Note: Some variations of the Admiral Cocktail may call for the addition of other ingredients such as maraschino liqueur or orange bitters.
