Last night, Andrea was making a grapefruit juice-based salad dressing and used some of the extra juice to make me a drink as motivation to start cooking dinner. The drink she chose was the Seventh Heaven from Ted Haigh's Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails which he describes as essentially an Aviation with the lemon juice swapped out for grapefruit. One aspect that was noteworthy was how incredibly well the botanicals in the Ethereal gin worked with the Luxardo Maraschino liqueur.
