Prince Rupert Instructions

The Prince Rupert cocktail is a classic drink that combines the bold flavors of whiskey with the sweetness of Grenadine syrup. This cocktail is named after Prince Rupert of the Rhine, a 17th-century prince who was known for his love of fine spirits.

To make the Prince Rupert cocktail, you will need a good quality whiskey, Grenadine syrup, and a lemon twist for garnish. Begin by filling a cocktail shaker with ice and adding a shot of whiskey. Next, pour in a quarter ounce of Grenadine syrup. Place the lid on the shaker and shake vigorously for about 15 seconds to chill the drink and blend the ingredients together.

Once the cocktail is properly chilled, strain it into a chilled glass. Garnish the drink with a lemon twist by twisting a strip of lemon peel over the glass to release its aromatic oils, then drop the twist into the drink. The lemon twist adds a touch of acidity and brightness to balance out the rich flavors of the whiskey and Grenadine.

The Prince Rupert cocktail is a sophisticated and elegant drink that is perfect for sipping on a special occasion or as a nightcap after a long day. Its combination of whiskey and Grenadine creates a complex and well-rounded flavor profile that is sure to please any whiskey enthusiast.

So, why not try making a Prince Rupert cocktail at your next cocktail party or gathering? It's a timeless classic that will impress your guests and leave them wanting more.
