As we mentioned yesterday, we’ve spent the last month eating LOTS of delicious grapefruits. When you get the awesome box full of them for Christmas, you start thinking beyond a glass of juice or a healthy morning meal. If you’re us, you also start thinking back to a delicious concoction you tried at Abattoir, one of our favorite restaurants.
Solely given Mary Katherine’s direction of “I like bourbon-based cocktails,” the bartender whipped up one of our new go-to favorites, and one that we heartily recommend to you. The result is the Brown Derby – a delicious blend of grapefruit juice, bourbon, and a mild sweetener. We’ve tinkered with the recipe over the past few weeks, and we’ve decided on the proportions that we like the best.
While it’s not recommended for breakfast, here’s a way to get all of the health benefits of grapefruit in a relaxing, well-deserved-end-of-the-day-treat form.
