Derby 2

October 26, 2009

Buffalo Trace bourbon
Carpano Antica sweet vermouth
orange curacao
lime juice

Shake ingredients and serve up. Garnish with a lone, freshly spanked mint leaf.

This is an easy-drinking variation on the classic Derby, which is simply bourbon, Benedictine and bitters. The original has a Manhattan-ish quality, whereas this one is decidedly more Sidecar-esque.
