Black mission fig bitters from Brooklyn Hemispherical Bitters and a cinnamon simple syrup are at once spicy, smoky, and sweet when mixed with grapefruit juice and blended Scotch whiskey, conjuring a sense of a long winter coming to an end, with a hint of spring in sight. This cocktail was inspired by a similar drink created by mixologist Lynnette Marrero.
