Ward Eight

Tuesday, November 7th, 2006

Eric Felten, the Wall Street Journal‘s fine drinks writer, has done an admirable job documenting the history of this admirable cocktail, and his preferred proportions are shown below. I fear I shall require several Ward Eights as I watch the election returns on my grand-nephew’s television this evening. Or perhaps I’ll mix them in celebration instead.

2 oz rye whiskey
½ oz fresh lemon juice
½ oz orange juice
½ oz grenadine

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
