"Scoff-Law": The Word and the Cocktail
Back in the Prohibition days, there was a very popular cocktail known as "Scoff - Law", it was created by a millionaire named Delcevare King. King had anti-saloon league morals and offered a prize for the person who created a new word for the "Lawless Drinker". "Scoff - law was the winning entry and a cocktail baring the same name was soon to follow. The cocktail was a sour with an addition of some dry vermouth. The cocktail first appeared in at Harry's New York Bar, located in Paris circa 1924.
· 1 1/2 oz. Rye Whiskey
· 1 oz. Dry Vermouth
· 3/4 oz. Grenadine
· Juice of ½ Lemon
Place all ingredients into an ice-filled shaker. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
As usual, I enjoy working many of these classic cocktails into my world of rum and give them a new twist. This cocktail fits into that category very well, because of it's first ingredient. I think that a bit of Doorly's XO would be a good starting place and then lets see where it leads.
Place all ingredients into a shaker filled with ice and shake until chilled. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon zest.
This is a really tasty cocktail I think that you will enjoy. ;o)
