In honor of the Kentucky Derby, here’s a recipe from our book, DIY Cocktails. Horse racing and bourbon go hand in hand, but you don’t have to be in the stands wearing your best seersucker suit or fancy hat to enjoy a little bit of Kentucky at home!
1 ½ oz bourbon
½ oz Grand Marnier
½ oz fresh apple juice
½ oz fresh lemon juice
Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake for about 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and, if desired, garnish with an apple slice.
