Curated this. Removed the long quote from Toby for copyright reasons - it's at the cited link. Added the grapefruit peel garnish, removed "fresh" from lemon juice... we know better. Rewrote instructions to avoid copyright. As an aside, this develops grapefruit flavors without the use of grapefruit - I'm not sure that adding the grapefruit bitters is necessary. Thanks,  Zachary
