1 dash of Angostura Bitter

How to make

The Derby cocktail has several totally different recipes under the same name. In 1947 Trader Vic publishes "Bartender's Guide" in which there are no less than 3 "Derby" recipes. We have chosen this recipe which honors a benedictine with great potential and often forgotten, here married with bourbon and angostura bitters.
