Recipe: The Brown Derby

The Brown Derby cocktail is the featured drink of “Episode 38: Why are white people”. I ended up really enjoying this drink, even if it took a little bit to grow on me. I also made a variation with gin that was DELISH.

The Brown Derby 

  • 1.5 oz Corn Whiskey 
  • 1 oz Grapefruit Juice 
  • .5 oz Rosemary Honey Syrup* 
  • Garnish: Rosemary sprig and grapefruit twist 

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake 8-10 seconds or until the shaker is frosty.  

Strain in glass over fresh ice.  

*Rosemary and Honey Simple Syrup 

  • 1 c Water 
  • 1 c Honey 
  • Bunch of Fresh Rosemary 

Combine honey and water in a pot over medium heat and stir to dissolve honey.  

Add the rosemary and cook over low heat for 30 minutes.  

Remove to heat and allow to cool completely before straining the mixture to remove the rosemary. Bottle and refrigerate up to 1 month.
