1/3 Grapefruit Juice (3/4 oz)
1 dash Grenadine (1/4 oz)
1 dash Picon (1/4 oz Amer Picon)
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. I added a grapefruit twist to the recipe.
For a nightcap Sunday night two weeks ago, I began flipping through Pioneers of Mixing at Elite Bars: 1903-1933 for inspiration. There, I stopped upon the Swanee Shore which could have been named after the World War I-era Southern waltz song. What caught my attention was the combination of grenadine and Picon which Trader Vic frequently utilized in drinks like the Jayco and Philippine Punch; the Pioneers recipes made use of this pairing a few times well before Trader Vic ever latched on to it such as in the Bronco.
