“I was experimenting a little bit with pomegranate syrup and a dry vermouth yesterday and this cocktail was the outcome. After a few more cocktails I still didn't have a title for it. By that time I was listening to an old song from "Dire Straits" and use the song title for this cocktail. It sure has Swing and the intense red reminds a bit of the orient. It is a bit more toward the sweet side, but you can add some more lemon juice. The dash of salt emphasizes the different flavours.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Keep the grenadine and the Noilly Prat in the fridge. So they are already cold enough.
  2. Mix first four ingredients.
  3. Fill a Martini glass with ice.
  4. Pour the mixture over the ice and garnish with lemon wedges.
  5. NOTE: I love Noilly Prat and would recommend to use it. If you can't get it, use a very dry vermouth. Use a high quality pomegranate syrup, because it makes this cocktail.
