The Ward Eight

For once, a cocktail, with a fairly clear history.
This cocktail is originated out of Boston, in 1898. To be more specific, in the Locke-Ober restaurant.

It has been told the drink was created to honor the election of Martin M. Lomasney in the General Court of Massachusetts.

The ingredients are rather simple:

- 2 parts rye whiskey
- 1/2 part lemon juice
- 1/2 part orange juice
- one teaspoon of grenadine

Shake the drink with ice, and serve in a chilled cocktail glass (cocktailglasses never contain ice).
Can be garnished with a maraschino cherry and/or slice of orange.
