The Ward Eight
MAKES ONE DRINK
Named after a voting district in Boston famous for its political corruption, The Ward Eight is a somewhat forgotten classic cocktail that shows how well rye whiskey can pair with orange juice.
50 ml (1 2/3 fl. oz.) Michter’s Straight Rye Whiskey
25 ml (¾ fl. oz.) fresh lemon juice
25 ml (¾ fl. oz.) fresh orange juice
7.5 ml (1½ tsp.) grenadine
10 ml (2 tsp.) simple sugar syrup (or to taste)
Orange wedge and Luxardo maraschino cherry as garnish
Add all the drink ingredients to a cocktail shaker with a scoop of cubed ice and shake hard. Strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with an orange wedge and a cherry.
