Fish House Punch

The cornerstone of what would later be known as The White House was laid this week back in 1792. It’s first resident? John Adams, who favored this oddly-named colonial-era cocktail.
RECIPE as mixed by Jim Hewes, bartender at the Round Robin Bar in Washington D.C.’s Willard Hotel:
In shaker over ice, add:
– 1 oz. rum
– 1/2 oz. brandy
– 1/2 oz. triple sec
– 1 oz. lemon sour mix
– dash of grenadine
– OJ to taste
Shake, pour into rocks glass and fill with club soda… or if you’re feeling celebratory (say on election night), substitute champagne.
