There are several accounts of the origins of this name. One claims the name comes from Bob Cole's 1902 hit song "Under the Bamboo Tree", but William Boothby, a noted bartender of the day, says in his 1908 book "The World's Drinks" that the drink was created and named by Louis Eppinger, at the Grand Hotel in Yokohama, Japan.
Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
Louis Eppinger (~1890)
