Make & Muddle is excited to be working with Four Roses on cocktails for the Derby Festival this year! We have not one but TWO punches that will be served at the ticketed events and on the bar at Fest-a-ville this year! We will be sampling this and our other punch, Rose Island Punch, at Festival Unveiled on Wednesday, March 16 at 5 PM. Come out and see the magic happening this year for the 2022 Kentucky Derby Festival!
The first punch is a fresh Make & Muddle take on the classic Brown Derby cocktail. Four Roses bourbon, Honey Lavender Elixir and fresh juices make this an easy drinking cocktail that batches beautifully and is perfect for any gatherings!
Derby Days Are Here Again
2 oz Four Roses bourbon
.75 oz Honey Lavender Elixir
.5 oz fresh grapefruit juice
.25 oz fresh lime juice
Muddle 4-5 fresh mint leaves. Shake and double strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with grapefruit or orange rosette with mint leaves.
We think the garnish on this cocktail is all of the things. If you would like to make your own rosettes, check out our video below.
