We've all heard about the Manhattan and the classic Sazerac but i just came across an interesting old cocktail here (http://4bars.com.au/web/2009/05/14/classicthe-scofflaw-cocktail/) that was first compounded at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris, 1924, during the height of American Prohibition.

The Scofflaw Cocktail


45ml Straight rye whiskey 30ml Dry vermouth 20ml Lemon juice 20ml Real pomegranate grenadine Dash of orange bitters

Add all ingredients into a mixing glass. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist.


I will be trying one of these this weekend!

Enjoy!

Here's a link to an article in today's New York Times about the fad for speakeasy-like bars. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/03/dining/03speak.html?_r=1&hpw The article notes that Prohibition was a time of bad cocktails.

Prohibition marked the beginning of a nearly half century long lull for cocktail culture in America, however across the pond, American Expat and European bartenders continued to innovate.

The Scofflaw is actually quite a tasty cocktail.
