sir walter cocktail

50% Brandy (1 oz Du Peyrat Selection)
50% Rum (1 oz Smith & Cross)
1 tsp Lemon Juice (1/2 oz)

1 tsp Grenadine (1/2 oz)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
Two Wednesdays ago, I found the Sir Walter Cocktail in the 1933 reprint of Jack's Manual. The recipe first appeared into Harry MacElhone's 1927 Barflies and Cocktails, and Difford's Guide surmised that it was created in honor of either Sir Walter Raleigh or Sir Walter Scott. Once mixed, it showcased an orange and rum funk aroma. Next, lemon, orange, berry, and caramel notes on the sip landed upon funky rum, Cognac, berry, and orange flavors on the swallow.
