When I think of The Derby, the first thing that pops in to my head is awesome bourbon cocktails. I’m not much of a horse racing guy, what can I say. Though, when said bourbon cocktail pops in to my head it’s usually a Mint Julep in a frosty silver cup. So, I have to say, when I saw the recipe for The Derby in Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Spirits I was intrigued. It’s a bourbon cocktail with sweet vermouth and lime juice. See, interesting stuff going on here. Looking forward to the flavor interplay to come.
