What "classic cocktail" originated in Hollywood, California? What happy hour treat is known for its citrus, sour AND sweet flavors? If you guessed the Brown Derby...you are correct!
This week’s Thirsty Thursday is the sweet, but sour bourbon cocktail known as the "Brown Derby". It’s history is a little shaky, but one fact that seems to remain true is it origins. The Brown Derby originated in Los Angeles, California – Hollywood to be exact. This restaurant-inspired drink has only three easy ingredients; bourbon, grapefruit juice and honey simple syrup. Not a big sweet cocktail drinker? Add more grapefruit juice. Don’t like the punch of sour in your happy hour treat? Add more honey simple syrup. The beauty of this drink is that you can adjust it to the acquired tastes of you and your guests. Cheers!
