Whiskey Drink: The Beautiful Little Fool


Words and Photography by Emily Vikre

2 oz Bourbon (I used Bulleit when I was developing it)

3/4 oz fresh grapefruit juice

3/4 oz Lillet Blanc

3 dashes citrus bitters

Shake these together with ice for 30 seconds, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with lemon peel (roll the lemon peel between your fingers over the cocktail to release the oils before dropping it in). If you feel daring, you can rinse your cocktail glass with a peaty Laphroaig before pouring in your cocktail.
