The Summit

Dry smell and first taste but with sweet and bitter notes. Very refreshing.
1 12 oz Bourbon, Buffalo Trace
12 oz Curaçao, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao
34 oz Aromatized wine, Lillet Rose
34 oz Elderflower liqueur, St. Elder
34 oz Grapefruit juice
4 dr Orange bitters, Fee Brothers Orange
1 twst Orange peel
Shake and then strain into cocktail glass. Coat rim with orange peel and garnish with orange peel twist. Any grapefruit juice will do, but preferably fresh.
The orange bitters and rim sweeten the smell while the sweet but bitter juice lightly compliments the dry and sweet of the liqueurs. The Bourbon gives a hint of old fashioned feel.

Curated for capitalization

Curated for capitalization and lack of instructions. I assume a tart grapefruit juice should be used to avoid excess sweetness. I also assumed that this should be shaken; please correct if I'm in error.
