Wet Bar Wednesday – Fireman’s Sour

I have no idea how the name for this came about.  If you search a bartending web site for drinks, you’ll be amazed/horrified at the variety of names.  Be aware, this is a dangerous sort of search to do – I’m not kidding.  There are some seriously messed up people out there, and they invent and name drinks.

We tried this one Sunday.  It was a bit too sour for my taste, but you can remedy that through additional grenadine (or maraschino cherry juice, or a bit of sugar or agave, or less lime juice).  My wife liked it, so there you have it.
Fireman’s Sour
  • 1 part white rum
  • 1 part lime juice (as always, fresh squeezed if you can!)
  • 1/3 part grenadine
  • 1 part club soda (to top off the drink)
  • orange slice & cherry for garnish
Mix the first three ingredients together & pour over a tall glass with ice.  Top the drink with the club soda.  Garnish with an orange slice and cherry.  The grenadine will make the drink a very pretty pink, so take that into consideration if pink drinks cause you angst.  Enjoy!
