The Scofflaw


The name of this drink, invented in Harry's New York Bar in Paris, was a term specifically applied to frequenters of speakeasies, flouters of the National Prohibition Act in the US. "It's a very versatile drink," says Mike Enright, author of Palmer & Co's cocktail list. "Pre- or post-dinner. You could even drink it in the bath, though perhaps not the shower." Enright recommends using Monin or Crawley's grenadine.

You'll need

50 ml Jim Beam rye whiskey 15 ml Dolin dry vermouth 15 ml lemon juice 10 ml grenadine 8 ice cubes To serve: lemon peel

Method

  • Add ingredients (except lemon peel) to a shaker and shake vigorously for 6┬áseconds. Taste for balance, then strain into a chilled Nick and Nora glass (see note) or cocktail glass, garnish with lemon peel and serve.
