Bacardi Cocktail

I’m loving Small Hand Foods Grenadine, which seems to have improved since I first bought it a while back. It’s rich, bright and flavorful, and a clear natural red. I’ve been using it like crazy to make all the classic grenadine cocktails: Jack Rose, Ward 8, Bacardi Cocktail.

Bacardi Cocktail
  • 2 oz Bacardi rum
  • 1/2 oz fresh lime or lemon juice
  • 1/4 oz grenadine
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

You gotta use Bacardi or it’s not a Bacardi Cocktail, is it? I’ve been using Bacardi 8, and sticking to the Embury 8:2:1 proportion or it turns into a lollipop. Personally, I don’t have a strong preference for lemon or lime for this.


  1. I need to revisit this drink. Your way or in the guise of Doug's "Infringement."

    While I'm at it I need to complete my Federal Glass series...

    1. Sorta reassuring, seeing those recipes on the shakers. I feel like toting one around with me to whip out every time I get a strange Tom Collins.
