If you’re a Louisvillian, Derby is in your DNA. No matter that no horses will run at Churchill Downs this first weekend in May, not celebrating Derby is not an option. If you don’t have a cocktail in your hand and a horse in mind, it really will feel like the end of the world as we know it. And we just can’t be doin’ that.
“Derby at Home” is a thing, y’all! While you won’t be able to enjoy an Oaks Lily at the track, you can join the “Kentucky Derby at Home” virtual party by mixing up a traditional cocktail and tuning in to NBC on May 2, from 3 to 6 p.m. EDT, to watch Pharoah’s historic 2015 Kentucky Derby win.
Mixing up an individual Oaks Lily or a pitcher is easy. All you need is
- 1 part Finlandia Vodka, the official Vodka of The Kentucky Derby
- 1 part sweet & sour mix
- 1/4 part triple sec
- 3 parts cranberry juice
Take a look at our video to see how quick and easy it is to mix up a pitcher.
