Kingfly Julep

I used to work at a gin-only distillery, and around Derby time, I had to come up with something that featured gin rather than bourbon. The honey is a nod to the original julep, and I love the way grapefruit and gin play together. This is a lighter, brighter, super refreshing version of a mint julep.
