The Scofflaw

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

  • 01
  • Add ingredients (except lemon peel) to a shaker and shake vigorously for 6 seconds. Taste for balance, then strain into a chilled Nick and Nora glass (see note) or cocktail glass, garnish with lemon peel and serve.

Note A Nick and Nora glass is a curved-bottomed coupe; many such glasses have a smaller capacity than a cocktail glass.


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.
