The Scofflaw, a term coined during prohibition to represent an individual drinking illegally. This cocktail fits the mold of a classic cocktail with rye whiskey and shouldn’t be relegated to the history books–it’s worth a sip.
This cocktail highlights the rye used in your cocktail with a distinct dry finish that puckers a bit yet a muted sweet starter. This tastes like a rye cocktail so use a good rye whiskey (do they make a bad rye whiskey?)
1 1/2 oz. Rye Whiskey, 1 oz. Dry Vermouth, 3/4 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice, 3/4 oz. Grenadine, Lemon Twist.
