Derby Fizz

Nightcap Cocktail Recipes

Quick Facts

Known as the “The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports”, The Kentucky Derby brings thousands of spectators down to celebrate for hours and even days in advance. One thing you can expect to see is men in loafers and bow ties and women in floral dresses and wide-brimmed, “Southern Belle” inspired Kentucky Derby hats. When it comes to cocktails, the Mint Julep is a staple drink. Well, time to move on over and make room for this balanced sour vs. sweet cocktail by simply shaking together some Rye Whiskey with citrusy DeKuyper® Orange Curacao and tart lemon sour. Top the drink with club soda for a whiskey fizz that’s as stylish as the floppy hats in the crowd.


  • 2 oz Rye Whiskey
  • 1/2 oz DeKuyper® Curacao Liqueur
  • 1 oz fresh Lemon Sour
  • Club Soda
  • Garnish: Orange Wedges


Combine all ingredients except the club soda in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake for 20-30 seconds or until chilled. Strain into a highball glass with ice and top off with club soda. Garnish with an orange wedge and enjoy!
