Run for the Roses…and a Julep Jubilee
The Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs Racetrack in Louisville is part one of horseracing’s Triple Crown. (The Preakness and Belmont Stakes follow.) The race, set for May 7, is known as “the most exciting two minutes in sports”—and for the more than 100,000 mint juleps that will be served during the event. Can’t attend? You can make your own perfect mint julep. Just muddle four fresh mint leaves, a teaspoon of powdered sugar, and two teaspoons of water in a highball glass or silver julep cup. Add two ounces of Kentucky bourbon, stir well, and garnish with fresh mint.
