The Scofflaw Cocktail

Not a law-abiding citizen? This one’s for you. This version of the Scofflaw is the classic, from Harry’s New York Bar of Paris. -DARYNA TOBEY

  • 1 1/2 ounces Old Overholt rye whiskey
  • 1 ounce dry vermouth
  • 3/4 ounce grenadine (*Eastern Standard makes their grenadine homemade; see recipe below)
  • 3/4 ounce lemon juice

Shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Strain into a chilled lowball glass. Using a vegetable peeler or channel knife, peel some lemon zest over the glass (but do not use the zest as a garnish).
