Brown Derby

Brown Derby presented by Cocktail Detour


The bitterness from grapefruit is perfectly balanced with sweetness from honey syrup and sourness from lemon in this otherwise bourbon-driven classic.⁠

We think these universal formula recipes are so intriguing. Switching out just the spirit, or the syrup, or the juice will create a different but most likely delicious drink. ⁠

But we have to say, this version with bourbon is pretty much pure perfection!⁠
