I asked the Cast Member which of the Carthay cocktails she liked best, and she instantly recommended The Derby.
Bingo. Sold. Let’s do this.
The drink arrives. It’s a gorgeous muddled brown and orange color. It’s served up. The glass is very cold. And there’s an orange peel riding shotgun on the rim.
I take a sip … and it’s wonderful.
The beverage is grapefruit juice, bourbon, and honey. It’s easy-drinking, refreshing, and delightful. The sort of thing you could drink all day. Like The French 75, this isn’t just good – it’s a standout.
You should absolutely try this when you’re at the Carthay. Terrific stuff.
