Pull out all the stops when planning any Kentucky Derby viewing parties – it’s a chance for us gals to dress to the nines and express our inner southern belle. 😉 I’ve got several chic drink selections for you to try at home in honor of the 143rd anniversary, including a take on the traditional beverage of the race for nearly as century, the Mint Julep.
Churchill Downs, the world’s most legendary racetrack, has conducted thoroughbred racing and presented America’s greatest race continuously since 1875. This year’s festivities once again promise to be the most exciting two minutes in sports!
Part southern tradition, part spectacle and the more extravagant the better, our cocktails are cool as Kentucky and fresh for spring….
