I can't found a single definitive or earliest source for this drink, widely claimed to originate in the 1800s, but here's a recipe from a source I mostly trust. Many recipes call for less or more sugar and juices; follow your bliss.

  • Wonderful! — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Tried with both Linie and Brennivín (do the former). With homemade grenadine, this is a 5. With the fake stuff, it's barely a 4. — ☆☆☆☆☆
