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.
- 1 1/2 ounces rye whiskey, preferably Rittenhouse
- 1/2 ounce sherry, preferably Lustau Palo Cortado Peninsula

- 1/4 ounce orange juice
- 1 1/2 ounces soda
Garnish: pineapple disc
