About the recipe: This digestive cocktail comes from Jay Zimmerman, owner of Sekend Sun in Astoria, Queens, who claims the bitters and ginger will help your belly deal with all those extra cocktails you might imbibe while watching the Kentucky Derby.


    • 2 ounces Kentucky bourbon
    • 4 ounces ginger beer
    • 5 mint leaves
    • 2 lemon wedges
    • Soda water
    • Angostura bitters


Add bourbon, ginger beer, lemon and mint to shaker with ice. Shake vigorously. Serve in highball glass and float 3-5 dash angostura bitters on top. Garnish with mint sprig.
