Review:

Brother, forgive me, I've tweaked your cocktail in the quest for harmony between whiskey, elderflower, falernum, and lime. Ideally, I also add 5ml / 1 spoon bottled-in-bond rye whiskey and the Ninth Ward cocktail is also perhaps best-served on-the-rocks rather than straight-up.

History:

Adapted from a drink created by Robert "Brother Cleve" Toomey in Boston, USA for Tales of the Cocktail 2008. The drink is a play on the classic Ward Eight and a homage to one of the New Orleans neighborhoods hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina.

Nutrition:

There are approximately 180 calories in one serving of The Ninth Ward.
