Dishing Up Derby

patty | Monday May 1, 2017

A little something different for this week's installment of Marketing Monday. The Kentucky Derby is perhaps, the most famous thoroughbred race in the world. "The Greatest 2 Minutes in Sports"..."The RUN For The Roses"...No matter what you call it, The Kentucky Derby is BIG BUSINESS, as well as BIG fun. And, we just couldn't let it pass by without joining in. All this week, we will feature a Derby tradition on our blog...yup, we are DISHING DERBY!! And, why not START with a cocktail? The Mint Julep has been the traditional cocktail of Churchill Downs and The Kentucky Derby for nearly a CENTURY.

Each year, almost 120,000 Mint Juleps are served over the two-day period of Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby weekend at Churchill Downs. That’s a LOT of Bourbon...a LOT of MINT...and a LOT of ICE! Want to learn HOW to craft this cocktail at home?

Here's the recipe, courtesy of Woodford Reserve (Woodford Reserve is a registered trademark) Woodford Reserve is the OFFICIAL Bourbon of The Kentucky Derby.
