Cocktail (Unnamed)

My grandmother had one recipe in the book dedicated to alcohol and as we were hosting our first family dinner party this weekend, I thought it a good time to whip up what she simply called “cocktail.”

Ingredients I used for this drink.

Here’s her recipe:

  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup simple syrup
  • 1 cup grenadine syrup
  • 1/2 cup martinique (I have no idea what this is.)
  • 1 3/4 cup rum, bitters and any type of liqueur that isn’t mint
My grandmother’s recipe.

As you can tell by the list of ingredients, this cocktail is very sweet. Here’s how I translated her recipe:

  • 1 shot lemon juice
  • 1/2 shot simple syrup
  • 1/2 shot grenadine
  • 2 shots rum
  • 1/2 shot basic bitters
  • Shaken with ice, then poured over one large ice cube.

The ingredients blended together well and the cocktail tasted fine, but I hate sweet drinks, so this wasn’t for me. If I make it again, I think I’ll either cut down the grenadine and simple syrup to a splash each or add some seltzer.

Et voila!
