Fireman’s Sour

A fireman's sour is a cocktail made with rum, lime juice, and grenadine. It was created in Vancouver in the 1960s by the owner of the Firehall bar for firemen fighting a local blaze. The drink's name derives from its popularity among firefighters. With ice in the shaker, combine the first four ingredients and pour into a chilled old-fashioned glass. If desired, top up with soda water. Serve with lemon and cherry garnishes. Serve in an Old-Fashioned Glass.
