Scofflaw Cocktail Recipe


Scofflaw Cocktail Recipe


The term 'scofflaw' was created back in 1924 and was used to describe the lawless drinker (during prohibition in the US). The Scofflaw cocktail was reportedly created by a bartender at Harry's New York Bar in Paris and was somewhat of a taunt to those back in the US that were unable to drink legally.
This recipe was Gary Regan's preferred recipe - the original called for 2 parts rye whiskey, 2 parts French vermouth, 1 part lemon juice and 1 part grenadine.
