Comments

This rye/grapefruit/walnut combo is such a good idea. I used mostly grapefruit juice and just a little lemon since I had some to finish, and I wanted more walnut in there, so I ended up with .25 oz of Nux Alpina and decreased the honey syrup to .25 oz. I really like my version but I'll try it as written next time- thanks for sharing.
