Hot Brown Derby

Hot Brown Derby Cocktail

2 oz fresh squeezed grapefruit
1 dash of grapefruit extract
1 oz Bulleit rye
1 Tbs of agave
1/2 medium jalapeño

For an intense grapefruit flavor, try adding some grapefruit extract in addition to fresh squeezing grapefruit.  This drink is somewhere between a ‘Brown Derby’ and ‘Hot Blooded’… The spiciness of rye and jalapeño take the edge off of the sweetness, and add some extra warmth to this citrus concoction.

In a cocktail shaker:
Stir grapefruit, extract, rye and agave until well mixed.
Add ice and jalapeño to the shake and shake a few times.
Strain into a glass and serve over ice.
