1 1⁄4 oz Rye
3⁄4 oz Lemon juice
1⁄4 oz Herbal liqueur, Green Chartreuse
1⁄4 oz Grenadine
1⁄4 oz Orange juice
1 twst Orange peel (As garnish.)
Instructions

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with an orange twist (a cherry or a lemon twist or no garnish at all would work well here too).

Notes

Not as blaring as the Final Ward and not as basic as the Ward 8 but somewhere pleasantly in between.

History

Phil Ward's Last Word riff, the Final Ward, came into my mind. My brain free associated with the name and thought about the 1898 Boston classic, Ward 8. Those two drinks share two ingredients, rye and lemon juice, and one word in the name, so why not try to mash them up?
