1/2 oz Spiced Grapefruit Cordial (*)

For my second drink at Craigie on Main, I asked John Mayer for the Atwood Grove that recently appeared on their drink menu. The libation was named after one of the largest grapefruit groves in the world where the first pink grapefruit was discovered in 1906. Given John's proclivity for serving drinks with a nod to Texas culture and given the long history of grapefruit production there, I was somewhat surprised to learn that the grove was actually in Florida. I do regret having this hot drink second for it would have been a great way to warm up after walking in the cold.
