Our review:

Zingy, sweet and sour, fruity and bourbon laced.


Originating in the mid-20th century, this cocktail is named after an American thoroughbred who was one of the greatest racehorses in history winning 20 of 21 races in 1919-20.

Traditional versions of this cocktail call for a whopping 30ml/1oz triple sec and 15ml/½oz lemon juice.
