Classic Blinker Cocktail Recipe

First popping up in the 1930s this little whiskey cocktail is pretty refreshing. A popular substitute for grenadine in this cocktail is normal old raspberry syrup like you would find in the pancake section of a grocery store. If you don’t have raspberry syrup you can use grenadine but that’s up to you.
