The original Blinker cocktail dates back to at least the 1930's and was originally made with rye whiskey, fresh grapefruit juice and grenadine. Back in the day, when grenadine was a more crafted product, it was made from pomegranates. Ted Haigh, also known as "Dr. Cocktail," put his spin on it a few years back by substituting raspberry syrup for the grenadine.
My variation, which I've named #3, I switched up the proportions a bit and added PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur in for a great sweet and tart balance, thus a little throwback to the original days of grenadine.
