Blinker Cocktail

The origins of the Blinker cocktail are unknown, but a recipe for it appeared in 1934 in Patrick Gavin Duffy’s The Official Mixer’s Manual. Ted Haigh (aka Dr. Cocktail) has tweaked that recipe to delicious results. “I now call it Dr. Cocktail’s Blinker,” he says. “The original had grenadine; I put a really good raspberry syrup in it instead, messed around with the proportions, and it’s just such a good drink!”

2 oz. rye whiskey
½ oz. fresh grapefruit juice (not pink)
1 barspoon raspberry syrup
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: cocktail
Garnish: grapefruit twist

Combine all ingredients with ice in a shaker and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled glass and garnish.
