The cocktail's simplicity is a wonderful factor in appeal of the cocktail for both home and pub consumption. The cocktail has three ingredients, but a really great appeal to patrons of the era.
The ingredients, rye, grapefruit juice, and grenadine, probably too sweet. too child like. or not manly enough. This cocktail is instead, a clean, fresh, and just a bit of a kick.
