Day 218, Cocktail 216

Yesterday was a quiet evening at home with a ton of stuff to catch up on after Paula and Cookie’s visit.  So a simple cocktail was in order and this little number from the Ultimate Bar Book seemed to fit the bill. 

  Ward 8

  • 2 oz rye whiskey
  • 1 oz orange juice
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1 bar spoon grenadine

Fill a rocks glass with a couple of ice cubes.  Add the ingredients, stir and then top the glass with ice.  Garnish with an orange slice and cherry.

What can I say, I just love the combination of orange and rye.  I used Jim Beam rye for this one and it was delicious.  The lemon really made this tart.  Next time I think I’d add a dash of bar syrup and perhaps a dash of bitters as well.
