Review:

This is a spirited, sweet and sour combination - like most politicians.

History:

Ward Eight was a voting district of Boston and famed for its political corruption. This drink was first served by Tom Hussion in November 1898 at Boston's Locke-Ober Café, in honour of Martin Lomasney, who owned the café and was running for election in Ward Eight.

The cocktail features in Robert Vermeire's 1922 Cocktails: How to Mix Them, as follows:
"This cocktail must be well shaken. It is composed of:
1 teaspoonful of Grenadine.
1/8 gill of Orange Juice.
1/8 gill of Lemon Juice.
1/4 gill of Rye Whisky.
This cocktail originates from Boston (U.S.A.), a city divided into eight wards.
"
