Author Notes: Dying for a cocktail that isn't a Mint Julep this Derby Day? The Derby is a classic that has somewhat fallen out of favor, unlike the big hats still synonymous with the Kentucky Derby. However, don't let that stop you from enjoying this brilliant bit of bourbon. This recipe is modified from Ted “Doctor Cocktail” Haigh’s personal favorite that made appearance in his 2009 book. —Cocktails, 365
ounces sweet vermouth
ounce orange curaçao
ounces fresh lime juice
- Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and fill with ice.
