Honeymoon Cocktail

The Honeymoon Cocktail is one of the signature cocktails from the Brown Derby in Hollywood, California that was probably featured alongside other 1930's legends of the famous bar like the Honolulu Cocktail. It's an interesting mix - a little sweet, a little dry and a little citrus - really a well-designed cocktail. Why the name Honeymoon? I have yet to get that answer but I could imagine a young couple walking into the Brown Derby after eloping and looking to start a career in Hollywood asking the barkeep for something special to celebrate. Maybe something right out of a classic film.
