Review:

Make this with homemade pomegranate syrup (in which case combine the grenadine and sugar syrup measures) and this cocktail will be rust coloured. Made with a commercial grenadine the result is likely to be more vibrant. The quality of your pomegranate syrup/grenadine will make o break the finished cocktail.

History:

During the height of Prohibition The Boston Herald ran a competition asking readers to coin a new word for "a lawless drinker of illegally made or illegally obtained liquor". Out of 25,000 entries, 'Scofflaw' was chosen and on 15th January 1924 the $200 prize was shared between two people who had submitted the word.

This cocktail was created by Jock at Harry's American Bar in Paris to celebrate the new term.
