Derby Day Cocktails

Saturday marks the 137th Run for the Roses, and whether or not you're a horse-racing fan, it's a day for wearing frivolous hats and drinking bourbon.

The sweet, rich, all-American spirit has long been associated with the Kentucky Derby. Not a coincidence, given Louisville's proximity to bourbon country.

So put on your seersucker suit or floral dress and fix some of these classic and modern bourbon cocktails. That way no matter which horse comes in first, you'll be a winner.
