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.
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.
