'21' Triple Crown

21 Club, New York

This cocktail combines classic Kentucky Derby drink ingredients such as bourbon, mint and Peychaud’s Bitters. The recipe was developed for Derby Day, which falls on May 4 this year.

To create the drink, an ounce of bourbon is combined with half an ounce of rum and a quarter ounce each of cream sherry, peach schnapps, orange juice, cranberry juice, lemon juice and lime juice. A splash of mint simple syrup is added, along with a dash of Peychaud’s Bitters.

The ingredients are shaken together with ice and poured over fresh ice, topped with lemon-lime soda, and garnished with a lime wedge and mint.

The drink is priced at $15.
