Subway Rumbles Cocktail

This signature cocktail from The Vault at Pfaff's in New York City finds harmony in an unusual combination: blended scotch and genever. Tart, easy-drinking, and just a little frothy from the use of egg white, it's one of those drinks you're not going to want to put down.



  • 1 ounce blended scotch, preferably Ballantine's or Famous Grouse
  • 1 ounce Bols Genever
  • 3/4 ounces fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 ounces grenadine syrup, preferably house-made
  • 1 fresh egg white
  • Ice
  • Dash of Peychaud's bitters
  • Orange twist, for garnish


Add all of the ingredients, except for the bitters and garnish, to an iced cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously and strain into a martini glass. Add a dash of bitters and garnish with an orange twist.

Rum Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Rum Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
