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.
