This signature cocktail from the Vendôme Club memorializes the Brown Derby, the Wilshire Boulevard restaurant perhaps remembered more for its hat-shaped exterior than for the celebrities who frequented it.
2 ounces bourbon
1 ounce fresh grapefruit juice
1/2 ounce honey
Shake all ingredients well with ice, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
