1 1⁄2 oz Scotch
3⁄4 oz Grapefruit juice (white)
1 t Honey

Shake, strain, up, optional grapefruit twist.


A Scotch Brown Derby that actually predates that cocktail by a few years, first appearing in 1927's Here's How by Judge Jr., and reappearing (with a call for generic "whisky") in the Savoy. The original calls for 1/2 part Scotch to 1/4 part each grapefruit juice and honey, which many modern palates (mine included) find cloying.
