Murray Stenson has a variation of this for modern tastes that is 1 1/2 oz rum, 1/2 oz lime juice,1/4 oz Cointreau, 1/4 oz grenadine, and 1 teaspoon Maraschino.
From other users
  • Maraschino is the strongest note, then lime, then angostura. Very easy and sweet, though I wonder how it would work with bourbon. — ☆☆☆
  • This drink actually goes back to the Savoy cocktail book, but without lime. As written here it is quite nice. — ☆☆☆
  • Mixed the "modern" version. Surprising that the little bit of maraschino comes forward. — ☆☆☆
