The Easterner (cocktail)

What attracted us the most to the idea of this cocktail (besides the fact that it's sweetened with maple syrup which I love, of course) is... its name. Since we're easterners and all, you know ;).
Plus, it's a little rough, like a manly cocktail, since it has whiskey, but also bitter-sweet: it has quite a lot of grapefruit juice, the already mentioned maple syrup and grenadine syrup. So it's enjoyable for the ladies as well. Rough, bitter and sweet. Just like our Eastern side of Europe. :)
Recipe source: here.

Last year: Breakfast braided bread with cheese and ham filling.
Two years ago: Avocado stuffed with cheese and tomatoes and Mexican nachos with mixed dips (salsa, guacamole, garlic sauce and cheese fondue).

Ingredients (for one glass):
  • 30 ml fresh grapefruit juice
  • 20 ml rye whiskey
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoon grenadine syrup

Mix the grapefruit juice, whiskey and the grenadine syrup in the glass. Pour the teaspoon of maple syrup at the end. It's done, dig in! :)
(Or should we say "Bottoms up!" when it comes to drinks? Maybe, but we'd lose our trademark).
