The Millionaire Cocktail

From The Bourbon Bartender: 50 Cocktails to Celebrate the American Spirit (Sterling Epicure, 2017), by Alla Lapushchik & Jane Danger.

This update of a classic­ cocktail created in 1925 at the Carlton Hotel in London tastes like a million bucks, and it gets its deep blush from grenadine (pomegranate syrup). If you seek a nonalcoholic tipple, mix the grenadine with spicy ginger beer for a high-end take on the classic Shirley Temple.


2 ounces Bourbon
½ ounce Grand Marnier orange liqueur
1 ounce grenadine (recipe below)
1 egg white


In cocktail shaker, shake all ingredients until frothy. Add ice, and shake again. Strain into chilled coupe glass.

Ingredients for Dry Grenadine

2 cups pomegranate juice
1 cup white sugar
⅛ teaspoon rosewater
Peel of 1 large orange


Over medium heat, cook ingredients for 10 minutes. Strain out peel. Refrigerated, it will keep up to 3 weeks.
