Good heavens, mint! I think that is a modern addition. Reasonably certain the grenadine is a defining component. I'm using an amalgamation and am not near my books for cites. I think my last was approximately: 2oz rye 1/2 oz simple 3/4 oz lemon juice splash orange juice 1/4 oz grenadine (real, obviously) Am I missing anything obvious that I don't remember? I shake it with ice, then strain onto fresh ice in a tumbler. Will post final recipe when satisfied. ~ H I tried this tonight and found it a competent alternative to the whiskey sour. I used Sazerac 6.
