Ooooh, lovely!

Since I haven't posted in a while, and I haven't posted about cocktails in even longer, I'm going to give you the recipe for the perfect Ward Eight. A Ward Eight is a variation on a Whiskey Sour, more or less. I futzed with the recipe a little bit, and this one that I made is wicked good.

2 oz. rye whiskey
1/2 oz. lemon juice
1/2 oz. orange juice
1/2 oz. blood orange juice
scant teaspoon grenadine (if using homemade grenadine, bump up to a 1/2 oz.)
dash of orange bitters
dash Angostura bitters

Shake all ingredients save for the Angostura bitters with crushed ice and pour, ice and all, into a double Old Fashioned glass. Add a dash of Angostura as a sort of float on top of the ice, and let it seep down.

You can also pour it as a cooler in the summertime...strain the cocktail into a Collins glass half full of crushed ice and top up with club soda or seltzer.

    I miss California tremendously. I'm working on getting back there permanently. That is all (for now).
