Dark Day

2 oz Rye
34 oz Grapefruit juice
1 t Wild hibiscus syrup
1 t Bitters, Angostura
1 t Amer Picon
Shake, strain, chilled cocktail.
Since Amer Picon is nearly impossible to get in the states, any reputable substiute will do. I used Amer Boudreaux.
Wanted to create something in the veil of the Brown Derby or Blinker. Dark Day is a term used when there is no horse racing.
