Henry Cogswell’s Water

Henry Cogswell’s Water

Henry Cogswell was a proponent of the temperance movement and creator of the first public drinking fountains, called temperance fountains, to discourage alcohol consumption. He passed away well before Prohibition, but his work was carried on by the Woman's Christian Temperance Union.

As we all know, Prohibition was repealed so the temperance fountains didn't work out so well. To honor this failed ambition, The Continental in Naples, Florida, has created a cocktail called Henry Cogswell's Water. This lighter style whiskey drink is brightened by lime and grapefruit citrus notes to produce a refreshing drink for any time of the day.

Ingredients:
1.5 oz Tin Cup Whiskey
2 splashes fresh squeezed lime juice
2 splashes of simple syrup
0.25 oz Maraschino Liqueur
3 dashes Scrappy's Grapefruit bitters

Directions:
In a shaker filled with ice, mix all ingredients and shake. Double strain into a glass over a sphere of ice. Garnish with small lime peel shaped like a coin
