De Rigueur Cocktail from the Savoy Cocktail Book


2 parts Canadian Club
1 part Makers Mark 46
2 parts fresh grapefruit juice
1 part honey water (1:1)
2 dashes Lactic acid

Add to shaker, shake and strain.

The earliest mention I can find of this cocktail is in Henry Craddocks book, The Savoy Cocktail Book (pg #58).  Listed here as the De Rigueur, the drink is two-one-one, or a simple ratio between all three ingredients producing a fairly well balanced drink, though one which is difficult to work with on account of the thick and heavy gravity of honey (so 1:1 it with water)
