Word of the Day

Scofflaw:
Someone who regularly breaks the law

The word was invented in a contest held to come up with a name for those who flouted Prohibition. It was taken and used to name a cocktail; which would, one imagines, have infuriated the temperance minded inventors of the word.

The cocktail consists of Rye Whisky, Vermouth, Lemon Juice, and Grenadine.

I think there is a good drink in there, but the amount of Grenadine that the recipe specified over-sweetened the drink for my taste. I shall need to experiment with different ratios.
