Brown Derby cocktail

Brown Derby cocktail


2 oz. bourbon
2 oz. freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
1/2 oz. agave syrup
Fresh rosemary sprig or grapefruit wedge or twist, for garnish

The classic bourbon Brown Derby cocktail is named for a famous hat-shaped Los Angeles diner. It's both sweet and sour with a hefty dose of grapefruit juice and a touch of agave syrup.


Place bourbon, grapefruit juice and agave syrup in a shaker and fill with ice. Shake, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a rosemary sprig or grapefruit wedge or twist.
