Early Morning Breeze, featuring James River Distillery and Belle Isle Moonshine

I decided to name this series of Virginia Spirits drinks after Dolly Parton Songs. Music is a huge influence for comfort, and Michele (one of the owners) and myself are huge Dolly Fans! Early Morning Breeze suited the feel of this drink well I think.

1 oz. Belle Isle Grapefruit
1 oz. Dolin Blanc

.25 oz. lime
dropper hopped grapefruit bitters
