  • Wonderful low-alcohol apertivo that replaces the more typical bitterness with a smooth tartness. Very enjoyable light drink! — ★★★★
  • Tasty. Sweet then bitter, but mildly so. Would be a nice sub for a pre-dinner white wine. — ★★★★★
  • Light, balanced, and interesting. Mildly bitter. Stefan enjoyed it. — ★★★★

Not bad, but I mostly taste grapefruit juice. I think this would be worth trying again with 1/2 oz grapefruit juice and a little club soda.

I made this up with a laphroaig rinse, 1.5 oz cocchi, 1 oz cognac, and 1/2 oz grapefruit. A different drink, but really delicious.
