Small. Made with dry curacao and ruby red juice. Terrific on the nose, but unremarkable taste. (3 stars)
Very orange-forward, as you might expect. Sort of a not-very-sour whiskey sour. (4 stars)
This has become one of my favorite cocktails of all time - it's pleasantly bitter, not too sweet, and has a nice lift from the grapefruit. I have yet to try it with rye, but I imagine it would be very nice. (5 stars)
