Sage Brown Derby

We’ve had this season-straddling cocktail before, but it’s a good time of year to trot the recipe back out. Enjoy!

Sage Brown Derby

  • 2 ounces rye whiskey
  • 1 ounce fresh grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 ounce (or less, we like less) agave syrup
  • 2 dashes bitters
  • 1 fresh sage leaf


  1. Combine whiskey, grapefruit juice, lime juice, agave, and bitters in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice and shake until outside is frosty, about 30 seconds; strain into a coupe glass. Slap sage leaf between your palms until fragrant; float on top of cocktail.
