About The Barracuda

The Empire Mixology website searched for the origin of this cocktail but came up empty on this one. Most bartenders agree the drink became popular during the 1970s and may have something to do with the vehicle also named Barracuda being popular at the same time period. Others point to a classical origin for the cocktail. Its creator is lost to history.
