American Whiskey’s Millionaire’s Row
To celebrate the Kentucky Derby this Saturday, 5/2/15, we asked American Whiskey, the New York restaurant and bar that boats over 150 American-made whiskeys, for suggestions on the best Derby refreshment this year. With an expertise in exactly that, bartender Jessica Duré recommends American Whiskey’s signature Millionaire’s Row, a bourbon meets blood orange pale ale cocktail ready for the races.



  • 2 oz. Basil Hayden
  • 0.5 oz. Amaro Lucano
  • 0.5 oz. Rose syrup
  • 0.5 oz. Lemon juice
  • 1.5 oz. Great South Bay Blood Orange Pale Ale

Combine all except the pale ale. Drop in two wheels of fresh blood orange and shake vigorously. Before straining, add pale ale and strain all into a glass over a couple cubes of fresh ice. Garnish with additional peel if desired.
