The Derby

May 1, 2010

Buffalo Trace bourbon
Dolin sweet vermouth
Combier orange liqueur
lemon juice
angostura bitters

Shake and fine-strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a mint sprig.

This is a lesser known version of the Derby. The more common version is a stirred concoction featuring bourbon, Benedictine, and angostura. We felt like rolling it out for the Kentucky Derby, while rejecting the obvious choice of the Mint Julep. That's how we roll.
