The Grapefruit Spoon
Grand Ten Distilling, right here in South Boston, makes some delicious products, I particularly like Wire Works Gin. So much, in fact, I persuaded staff member (and longtime bartender in his own right) Lonnie Newburn, to add the following refreshing rich cocktail which he notes “has a nice dry finish that leaves you wanting more!” Coincidentally, great photographer, Tom Kates, was on hand at the distillery to snap a photo of it.
