  • A 5x equal parts cocktail with 3/4oz each? Made as written but I still think this has extra lime. Maybe split the lime and grapefruit or use a very sweet grapefruit. — ☆☆☆☆

Is this really calling for 3

Is this really calling for 3/4 oz of both lime and grapefruit juice? The other reference I've found this online has only the grapefruit which seems more in like with the Espirit d'Escalier.

This is an excellent drink.

This is an excellent drink. Perfectly balenced. In fact I must say that while I was skeptical when I saw the 3/4 lime juice, it really balenced out the drink. Leave that out at your own peril. A must try!
