Review:

Spicy arrack notes shine in this cocktail that's best described as being rum's answer to a Martini.

History:

The "Four Flush Cocktail" appears in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book but I've based our recipe on the "Four Flush(er)" in Stanley M. Jones' 1977 Jones Complete Barguide.

1 Dash Grenadine or Syrup.
¼ French Vermouth.
¼ Swedish Punch.
½ Bacardi Rum.
