Start preparing the drink by placing your Collins glass in the refrigerator. It is essential to serve the drink in a thoroughly chilled bar glass, in order to maximize its taste and make it more visually appealing.
While the glass is cooling in the refrigerator, you can start preparing the Ward Eight cocktail. Begin by filling around a quarter of your cocktail shaker with ice cubes, and then pour in the ingredients for the cocktail. Start by adding in the whiskey, and then follow it up with the lemon and orange juice, and the grenadine.
Once all the ingredients are in, screw on the lid of the cocktail shaker tightly. Then, proceed to grasp it firmly, and shake it vigorously, until all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, and the cocktail is well-blended.
Now, remove the chilled Collins glass from the refrigerator, and hold a strainer over it. Pour the blended drink into the glass, and drop in two to three ice cubes. Finally, top the cocktail with club soda or seltzer, stick a stirring rod in the glass, and serve chilled.
