Ward 8 | Craft Cocktail

with grenadine

Ward 8

I had never heard of the Ward 8 until meeting Clair Mclafferty but if Clair makes you a drink . . you darn well better try it.  Back in August she introduced us to this crafted cocktail as one of her personal faves.  As a fan of the Whiskey Sour . . this sister recipe sweetened with grenadine is now also a personal favorite of my own.

There is myth and legend that surrounds this unusually named drink and most of it points back to a bartender in 1898 who created it and served it to a mob boss after he won an election in Boston’s eight ward.

Recipe for the Ward 8

2 ounces bourbon or rye
1/2 ounce grenadine
1/2 ounce lemon juice
3/4 ounce orange juice
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon wheel.
