Ward Eight Cocktail


Sweet & sour classic cocktail, created during the “Gilded Age” of the early 20th century.

The Ward 8 cocktail is a classic American cocktail that has its roots in Boston. Named for Boston’s eighth ward, an area famed for political corruption. It was created at the Locke-Ober restaurant, to celebrate the election of a local politician – Martin Lomasney. We are not sure how many of the original Ward Eights were actually drunk by Mr Lomasney on that night as he was a teetotaller, so it feels appropriate for us to create a non-alcoholic version of the Ward Eight.

Our non-alcoholic recipe of the Ward Eight stays true to the original with a balance of sweet and sour, together with a boldness and complexity from the botanical flavours of Banks Herbarium. A final sharpness and sophistication is achieved from the pomegranate in the Grenadine syrup. 


  • 60ml Banks Botanicals
  • 25ml Orange Juice 
  • 25ml Lemon Juice 
  • 1 dash Grenadine (pomegranate syrup)
  • Highball Glass
  • Cocktail Shaker
  • Garnish with Orange or Lemon peel


  • Pour ingredients into a shaker & shake.
  • Add Ice to the Shaker.
  • Shake until chilled
  • Strain & pour into a Highball glass.
  • Garnish with orange or lemon peel.
  • Serve & Enjoy


You can adjust your Ward Eight to suit your taste preference. If you are after a slightly sweeter version use less of the pomegranate grenadine or add a splash of soda water into your glass. If you like the bitter stuff you can experiment using a couple of dashes of bitters in your glass.

Mix Notes

When mixing drinks with a non-alcoholic spirit such as Banks we want to reduce time that Banks mixes with Ice before the drink is served.

This is because the flavours are water soluble so as the ice melts it dilutes the flavours. It is suggested to always dry mix ingredients in a shaker before pouring over ice or adding ice to the shaker.
