Brown Derby

Brown Derby

Named for the famous Brown Derby restaurant in Los Angeles, the Brown Derby is a reminder that using honey in a cocktail isn’t a new idea, and that grapefruit juice can be an excellent citrus alternative to lemon and lime. Making this simple classic with a delicious bold whiskey like the flagship Mischief Straight Rye Whiskey makes the perfect cocktail to sip on a sunny spring evening.

You will need:
2 oz. Fremont Mischief Straight Rye Whiskey
3/4 oz. fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
1/2 oz. honey syrup*
Grapefruit twist to garnish

*To make Honey Syrup combine 1 part honey with 1 part water in a sauce pan and warm it up on the stove, stir till combined. It will last in the fridge for a few weeks. Combine all the ingredients except the grapefruit twist in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake until chilled, about 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupe. Twist a piece of grapefruit zest over the drink and drop into the glass. Enjoy!
