Old School Cocktail Revival with a Twist - The Ward Eighty Eight

Originating in the late 1890's, the Ward 8 is said to have been created to celebrate the election of Martin Lomasney to Massachusetts' General Court. In particular, Boston's Eighth Ward was known for delivering Mr. Lomasney a high voting margin, which is where the cocktail's name came from.
