Ward Eight

Tom Hussion (Boston’s most famous cocktail, invented at Locke-Ober in 1898)

2 oz rye whiskey (if you can’t find rye, use bourbon)
3/4 oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1/2 oz real pomegranate grenadine

Shake all ingredients very well over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with orange wheel and cherry if desired.
