I have a new favourite cocktail, the Brown Derby. Perfect timing for the UK’s first warm(ish) weekend of 2018. ☀️ It’s along the lines of a whisky sour, but with less sugar and a little more floral from the grapefruit. It’s also crazy simple, you can make honey syrup without heating anything if you use warm water.

To make a Brown Derby, combine 1.5oz bourbon, 1.5oz fresh-squeezed pink grapefruit juice, and 0.5oz honey syrup (1pt honey to 1pt water) in a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously, then strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice. Garish with a grapefruit twist, or a thin slice of grapefruit against the side of the glass.

Was shown the light this past New Years and have been enjoying whiskey sours ever since. Keep forgetting the recipe though.

Pour 2 parts bourbon, 1 part lemon juice (lime’s nice too), ½ part simple syrup, and ½ part egg white in to a shaker with cubed ice and shake hard until very cold. Strain into a tumbler with fresh ice, garnish with orange if you’ve got it.
