A Few Words

Got some nice local honey so I wanted to do a take on a Brown Derby cocktail. A Brown Derby is typically just bourbon, grapefruit juice, and honey so I wanted to add some other flavors while still keeping the integrity of the drink. The Cocchi gave it a slight bitterness I feel it needed while the Manderine Napoloean and bitters gave it some nice floral and citrus rind notes. Cheers!
