Ward 8

Here is a delicious cocktail which in 1934 was named one of the Ten Best Cocktails by Esquire Magazine. Its history stretches even further back to 1898 when, as legend has it, the serving was created at the Locke-Ober Restaurant in Boston Massachusetts, to honour the election of Martin M. Lomasney to the state’s legislature. Apparently, it was the votes in Ward 8 which propelled Lomasney to victory hence the name of the tasty libation.
