Review:

Not far removed from an Aviation. Depending on your grapefruit juice, this particular Special may be very slightly on the sweet side but it's fantastically aromatic. If you find too sweet, then slightly up the grapefruit juice.

History:

Adapted from a recipe first published in William James "Billy" Tarling's 1937 Café Royal Bar Book.
