Squid Mixes: Ward Eight
A Ward Eight combines rye, lemon juice, orange juice and grenadine. I got my recipe from Eric Felten's How Was Your Drink? It is named for a neighborhood in West End Boston.
This drink is more exciting than the Bronx Cocktail from a couple weeks ago (see here) even though this one could just as easily be described as an OJ with stuff in it. The "stuff" brings more flavor this time and, of course, proportions matter. The orange and lemon are in equal parts and the combination definitely has more tang than orange alone.
