Yvonne’s Ward Eight

Will Thompson & David Wondrich, Yvonne's | Boston

This version of the Ward Eight, created in collaboration with David Wondrich, gets a nutty complexity thanks to the addition of a half-ounce of palo cortado sherry, a trick gleaned from a 1934 column in the New York Sun.


Serving: 1

  • 1 1/2 ounces rye whiskey, preferably Rittenhouse
  • 1/2 ounce sherry, preferably Lustau Palo Cortado Peninsula
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce grenadine
  • 1/4 ounce orange juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces soda

Garnish: pineapple disc

  1. Combine all ingredients in tin, add ice and shake.
  2. Strain into an ice-filled goblet, top with soda and garnish with a pineapple disc.
