The Scofflaw

The Scofflaw
The Scofflaw is a classic bourbon cocktail that might surprise you. Its taste can only be described as that of those little strawberry candies that Grandma used to keep in a glass dish. Unlike those obscure sweets (because we’re still not sure where you can even buy them), this drink is well within reach for your next cocktail party. In fact, we’re going to tell you exactly how to make it.


  • 1 oz bourbon
  • 1 oz dry vermouth
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1 - 2 tsp grenadine
  • Dash of Angostura bitters
  • Lemon twist to garnish


  1. Chill a martini or coupe glass in the freezer. Alternatively, use a rocks glass (as pictured).
  2. Add everything to a cocktail shaker half filled with ice and shake hard for 30 seconds.
  3. Strain into your chilled cocktail glass or serve in a rocks glass with ice.
