Judge Junior

I'm doing a mini-series on "judge" drinks, which might be a subset of the "professions" cocktails that could include The Journalist and Fireman's Sour. I'm still not sure that this category of cocktails is even a thing as much as the Monkish drinks and Opera cocktails clearly are.

One thing that's unclear is that there is a Judge Junior and a Judgette, but no Judge cocktail. I've made this one before and knew it to be strong and great tasting. It's zippy and beautifully colored. There's nothing junior about these proportions:
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. grenadine
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
