John Gertsen, bar manager of Drink in Boston, gave us the recipe for this aptly named Prohibition-era cocktail.
This recipe was featured as part of our New Year’s Eve Speakeasy Party.
- Yields: 1 drink
- Total: Under 5 mins
- 1 1/4 ounces rye whiskey
- 3/4 ounce dry vermouth
- 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1/2 ounce grenadine
- Dash angostura orange bitters
- 1 lemon twist
- Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add whiskey, vermouth, lemon juice, grenadine, and bitters and shake vigorously until well chilled, about 20 seconds. Strain into a cocktail glass, squeeze lemon twist over drink, and discard lemon.
