Tomorrow you’ll be able to watch “the most exciting two minutes in sports” on T.V. Yes, there will be some spectators at Churchill Downs, socially distanced. And in addition to Mint Juleps, they may be drinking a Woodford Spire, created by Woodford Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Woodford Reserve is the Presenting Sponsor of the Kentucky Derby.

If you’re new to Woodford Reserve, it’s a great value at its price point*. It’s smooth taste makes it a fine Bourbon to drink straight; or of course, to mix in any Bourbon cocktail.

So ladies: put on your most festive hat. Gentlemen: look dapper with a bow tie.

And both of you: Get out tall glasses or your julep cups, and start mixing!
 
 
RECIPE: WOODFORD SPIRE

While you can buy bottled lemonade, it doesn’t taste as good as fresh-squeezed.

But in second place is frozen lemonade. Buy a can of concentrate and dilute it with water. Check the label to see that it’a made from real lemon juice—not reconstituted juice. It will be tastier (and less expensive) than ready-to-drink lemonade.

Serve the Woodford Spire in a mint julep cup. If you don’t have one, substitute a copper Moscow Mule cup, or any other glass, including a wine glass.
