Who is this Nevin guy and what did he do with my bourbon? Nevins is a sharp citrus cocktail under-girded by the grainy bite of bourbon. I used Jim Beam white label because of its rye component that allows it to stand up to grapefruit juice.

Normally you need some sugar to soften the citrus juices, but apricot brandy does this and adds additional fruit flavors that go well with bourbon. I used a grapefruit slice to garnish the glass because it is especially beautiful.
  • 2 oz. bourbon
  • 1 oz. grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. apricot brandy
  • dash Angostura bitters
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
