After operating for 137 years as Locke-Ober, a triumph of Boston’s Gilded Age, the city’s third-oldest restaurant was recently transformed into Yvonne’s, a glitzy supper club. One piece of history remains: The Ward 8, a relative of the whiskey sour, which was invented at Locke-Ober in 1898.
3 tablespoons (1 1/2 oz.) rye whiskey
1 tablespoon (1/2 oz.) manzanilla sherry
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
1 tablespoon (1/2 oz.) grenadine
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh orange juice (from 1 orange)
How to Make It
Place all ingredients (except orange twist) in a cocktail shaker filled with ice; cover with lid, and shake vigorously until chilled, about 30 seconds. Strain into an ice-filled goblet. Garnish with a pineapple disc.
