It’s not every year the Kentucky Derby happens on a holiday! Cinco de Mayo and the Derby combine this year on the 5th of May.

How would you combine Kentucky Derby fare – mint juleps and big hats with Cinco de Mayo’s tequila, margaritas and fabulous food choices?

Bourbon Mint Julep Kentucky Derby Party Invitations

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

The Mint Julep has been the official drink of the Kentucky Derby since the 1930s.  In 2014, Churchill Downs named Old Forester bourbon as the choice for the almost 120,000 Mint Juleps served every year at the Derby and the Oaks (the race run the day before.)

Now, you and your party guests can enjoy the same drink as Derby goers with the Old Forester Mint Julep Ready-to-Serve Cocktail (available at Bev Mo, on-line and in other select stores.) Tagged as the 10-second Mint Julep, the hard work of making authentic mint juleps is a thing of the past, unless you enjoy doing it yourself (an original recipe takes 4-6 hours for the bourbon-sugar mixture to sit and the flavors to blend before serving.)

Whichever mint julep recipe you select, be sure you have plenty of crushed ice, fresh mint springs and fun glasses, silver julep cups or plastic tumblers to serve this signature drink to your guests.

If you’re making your own Mint Juleps, you might want to add some of the bourbon for some recipes like Bourbon Mustard to serve with sandwiches, or maybe a Bourbon Pecan Pie for dessert.

You can add a little bourbon to your barbecue sauce if you’re serving ribs or brisket or how about making some Bourbon Sea Salt Caramels? I sure you can find some great ways to use bourbon besides just serving it over ice.

What do you need for a Kentucky Derby Party?

Saturday, March 11th, 2017

Often referred to as the “most exciting two minutes in sports,” the Kentucky Derby is run on the first Saturday of May every year at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.

One year for my birthday, my husband and I went to the Derby (the year Barbero won the race).  My derby hat (below) made it onto the derby track on the head of a sports photographer.

My Kentucky Derby Hat on the Track

You don’t have to live in Kentucky or attend the race to celebrate this event. So what do you need for a fabulous Kentucky Derby party?

  • Terrific invitations to get your guests excited about your event
  • A big screen TV to watch all the pre-race events and the actual race.
  • Fun decorations associated with the Kentucky Derby
  • Traditional Southern food and drink – mint juleps, non-alcholic mint juleps or infield punch
  • Fun friends
  • Derby hats for both women and men should be required

Memorize the past ten winners before your guests arrive or astound guests with your knowledge of the Kentucky Derby winners all the way back to 1875 with our complete list of all the winners up to last year.
