Ward 8

Ward 8:

1.5 oz Rye Whiskey (Michter's)
.75 oz lemon juice
.75 oz orange juice
Dash pomegranate grenadine (Stirrings)

We have found ourselves making this cocktail more than any other at home. This is partially due to its simplicity to make, and partly to the excellent variety of citrus available in winter, as well as the astounding number of high quality ryes currenltly available, when only a few years ago, Old Overholt was the only option (and still and excellent one, especially price-wise). Two important ingredients that make the difference between a forgettable drink and a memorable favorite are real grenadine and fresh squeezed orange juice.
