Guns and Rosé
A whiskey made primarily from a corn grain mash, aged in charred oak barrels.
A French quinquina aperitif wine produced from 85% Bordeaux rosé wines and 15% macerated liqueurs, giving the wine a grapefruit like taste.
A syrup made from dissolving granulated sugar (sucrose) in water. Regular simple is made by combining 1:1 sugar:water by mass, rich simple is 2:1 sugar:water by mass although only 1.5 times as sweet as regular. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
A gentian-base aromatic bitters similar to Angostura but with a lighter body, sweeter taste and more floral aroma. A common component of the Sazerac.
A hybrid citrus fruit originating in Barbados as an accidental cross between two introduced species, sweet orange and pomelo. Like other citrus fruits the grapefruit is popular among cocktails for its peel and juice.
Stir all the ingredients, except the peel, over ice. Strain into a rocks glass and express the grapefruit peel over the drink, then discard. #stir #straight
I like combining a high-proof spirit with something soft and delicate. -Scott Teague
