Coin-sized grapefruit zest twist (sun-like)
How to make:
SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.
|1 1/2 fl oz||Straight rye whiskey (100 proof / 50% alc./vol.)|
|1 fl oz||Dry vermouth|
|1 fl oz||Pink grapefruit juice (freshly squeezed)|
|1/12 fl oz||Sugar syrup 'rich' (2 sugar to 1 water, 65.0°brix)|
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.
