Best Kentucky Derby cocktails

See also

Kentucky Derby numbers are impressive – particularly when you’re talking about the number of mint juleps served during the race’s 139 year history. All told, over 16,680,000 juleps have passed over the lips of Derby fans at Churchill Downs alone. The cocktail has been closely associated with the race and the South since the eighteenth century when U.S. Senator Henry Clay of Kentucky debuted the drink at the Round Robin Bar in the Willard Hotel.

For big spenders with charitable hearts, the Derby offers a $1,000.00 version made with extra-premium liquors and served in custom-made gold-plated cups with silver straws. The pricey potation includes Woodford Reserve bourbon, mint imported from Ireland, spring water ice cubes from the Bavarian Alps, and sugar from Australia. Thankfully, the proceeds support retired race horses.

The mint julep may hold the top spot on the libations list, but there are few more booze-based beverages worth tasting, such as:

· Spicy Bloody Mary / Bloody Caesar

· Sweet Bourbon Punch

· Ginger Julep

Mix, muddle, and imbibe the quintessential cocktails of the Kentucky Derby!
