I don't wan't to step on any toes here but I figured someone should create this thread, seeing as we've not only barrelled past spring and summer, but now also 2012. I hope no one was looking forward to seeing how long the old thread could continue past its expiration date. I apologize if so...


Tonight was a Ward Eight for me. I wasn't setting hopes high based on Imbibe/Esquire's lukewarm review of it.

Rye (Old Overholt), OJ, lemon, and grenadine (homemade) came together quite well. The review deemed it 'good but nothing special', but I'd say it was a happy, albeit simplistic, union of ingredients that I'd willingly make again. And I was even able to use up my Old Overholt and not grimace!
