I love the maltiness of the Ransom and the citrus of the Suze playing off each other, plus the cinnamon, pepper, and ginger give a rich, robust smoothness to round out the cocktail.
2 grapefruit slices
2 dashes ground pepper
2 oz (60 ml) Ransom Old Tom Gin
.75 oz (22.5 ml) Suze
.75 oz (22.5 ml) The American Juice Company’s Ginger Gershwin

Muddle the grapefruit and black pepper in a shaker. Add ingredients and shake over Kold Draft ice. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh Kold Draft ice. Add the garnish.
