Brown Derby Spritzer

Brown Derby Spritzer

Cocktail time!  Don’t let the name of this Brown Derby Spritzer fool you.  While you may think that that this drink is named for the Kentucky Derby, it is actually a take on a classic cocktail named after a Los Angeles diner! My favorite cocktails are those that are sweet, sour, and of course…full of bourbon.  This recipe fits all of those descriptions and more!  Perfect for a hot spring/summer day, I’m definitely going to have this one by my side all season long!
