The classic Brown Derby cocktail (bourbon, grapefruit juice and honey syrup) was originally created at the Vendome Club in Los Angeles during the Golden Age of Hollywood. Leaning into the tart, refreshing flavors we’ve replaced the honey syrup with honey liqueur and added soda for a highball with just the right amount of glamour.
