Very bitter aftertaste, delight grapefruit flavor. May need a touch of lemon or lime if the grapefruit is very sweet. Also very, very good without the gin.

Had this again tonight. It's really a great cocktail. The Black Balsams adds quite a bit of complexity and depth and the grapefruit juice keeps it fresh and vibrant. Simply great. I can easily get Black Balsams in Boston. It's worth seeking out. My Latvian friend recommends aging it in the bottle for at least a year. Maybe I should put a few away for the future ;)
