The bitterness from grapefruit is perfectly balanced with sweetness from honey syrup and sourness from lemon in this otherwise bourbon-driven classic.
We think these universal formula recipes are so intriguing. Switching out just the spirit, or the syrup, or the juice will create a different but most likely delicious drink.
But we have to say, this version with bourbon is pretty much pure perfection!
2 oz bourbon
1 oz grapefruit juice
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
0,5 oz honey syrup
Shake all ingredients with fresh ice and strain into a coupe.
