Shake everything with ice cubes and pour unstrained into an old-fashioned glass.
I could have sworn I did this drink a year ago, but couldn’t find any record of it in my photo album, nor on this blog, unless my memory is failing me.
Well here it is, Western Sour from Steve Crane’s Kon-Tiki restaurant chain around the 1950s. It’s clearly a play on Trader Vic’s Eastern Sour cocktail: using grapefruit juice instead of orange; lime instead of lemon; and falernum instead of orgeat syrup. In a way this is made slightly more complex by the extra ginger and lime from the falernum, and made tarter with both grapefruit and lime, if not for that unnecessary quarter ounce of simple syrup.
Use a white grapefruit juice if you can, it’s drier than the pink version; and feel free to leave out the simple syrup completely for a balanced drink.

For the past few years, Anja was able to shed light on the realities of war in Afghanistan in a way that only a photojournalist of her caliber could pull off. See more of her incredible work below.
