The Bar's cocktail takes its inspiration from the pack coming down the homestretch. With a 111.1 proof bourbon as its base, this twist on the Derby drink may be an ideal "one and done" cocktail–too many and you may be trampled. Earthy notes starting with beetroot, subtle spice and floral notes from pink peppercorns, and mild sweetness and astringency from the mint leaves and bitters leave this libation well balanced.
