Bourbon Punch for the Summer
The Ward Eight from the Commanding General of Maxwel Air Force Base.
6 parts bourbon
2 parts orange juice
2 parts lemon juice
1/2 part grenadine
Shake with hard ice and strain into an insulated glass.
Extra points for an umbrella with a cherry.
Three of these in the sun and you will be ready for admission to Ward 8.
I highly recommend the book or movie "Capt. Newman, M.D."
Ward 8 in a military hospital at the time was for psychiatric patients. And this drink was the submission to the cookbook by the Commanding General.
Can you imagine the uproar today if a General recommended an alcoholic drink?
