Classic Cocktails with Grenadine

My earlier post on grenadine has been getting some attention lately, so I thought I’d go ahead and post a few recipes for classic cocktails that use grenadine.  That way you’ll have something to do with all of that grenadine you’ve been making! These are a few classics that will delight any of your guests, whether they’re discerning cocktail nerds or first timers.  Most of these drinks use ingredients you probably already have in your liquor cabinet as well, which is certainly a bonus.

 PomegranateMartini Glasses

Clover Club

1.5 oz Gin
0.50 oz Grenadine
0.75 oz Lemon Juice
2 tsp Simple Syrup
1/2 Small Egg White

Put all of your ingredients in a shaker and shake the crap out of it.  You need to emulsify the egg white, so I recommend a 30 second dry shake followed by a 30 second wet shake. Strain this drink into a v shaped glass and you’ll have a nice cocktail with a creamy foam layer on the top.

Ward Eight

2 oz. Rye Whiskey
0.75 oz Simple Syrup
0.75 oz Lemon Juice
0.25 oz Grenadine

This is basically a whiskey sour with a splash of grenadine, but it’s pretty delicious.  Toss these ingredients in your shaker and shake it up.  Strain into a rocks glass over new ice and garnish with a lemon peel.

Jack Rose

1.5 oz Applejack
0.75 oz Lemon Juice
0.75 oz Grenadine

Put your ingredients in a shaker and mix them up well.  Strain into a martini glass and garnish with an apple slice. A lot of recipes call for simple syrup here, but I choose to increase the amount of grenadine and omit the simple syrup.  If you prefer, you can always add simple syrup and decrease the grenadine.
