Rum, sweet vermouth, and grenadine are the star ingredients of the Palmetto cocktail. This complex cocktail originated at the turn of the 19th century but has recently stepped back into the spotlight. Serve a Palmetto cocktail as a sweet, sophisticated after-dinner drink at your next party.
For something a little fancier, garnish with a Luxardo cherry.
Pre-chill your cocktail glasses in the freezer for 30 minutes before serving.
The Palmetto is best stirred slowly, not shaken. This helps to blend the flavors and makes for a smoother drink.
