Review:

Best made with a bottled-in-bond rye whiskey but also works well with bourbon. Depending on your whiskey and grapefruits, you may want to omit or even increase the sugar syrup. Strike the right balance and this is a refreshing bracer of an aperitif.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in the 1949 edition of Esquire's Handbook for Hosts.
