About this Cocktail

The Clara Bow cocktail was created at Rye House in New York City in 2009. There are other recipes online for drinks called "Clara Bow," but this appears to be the first. I found this cocktail online at Serious Eats.

  • •​1 1/2 ounces bourbon
  • •3/4 ounces lemon juice
  • •​1/2 ounce grenadine
  • •​1/2 ounce St. Germain elderflower liqueur
  • ​•Mint leaves

Shake all ingredients over ice and then double strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with mint — or mint and a cherry as I did.

Also, in the Rye House’s recipe on Serious Eats, their Clara Bow is made with Bulleit Bourbon
