Johnny Weissmuller Cocktail


Cocktail Glass

Glass Guide- Cocktail Glass

Johnny Weissmuller is best known for his role as the original Tarzan. He put his Olympic swimmer physique to good use in the African themed movies of his day including a dozen Tarzan films and the later Jungle Jim series that ran for another 16 films.

The Johnny Weissmuller Cocktail takes the classic Martini and adds a slightly more tropical twist that is fitting for the Tarzan.

  • 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
  • Dash of grenadine


  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
