The Ward 8 is known as the cocktail invented in Boston to honor Martin Lomasney of the West End. That's the legend. The truth is a bit more complicated, but no less intoxicating. Stephanie Schorow unravels the political skullduggery and drinking habits and customs of the late 19th Century that set the stage for the creation of this cocktail and how its invention fits into the cultural  and political landscape of the city.
