One of my favorite days of the year -- Derby Day. In the top 3 on my bucket list, I always watch and hope that maybe next year will be the year I make out there.

While I watch, I'll be enjoying some 4R SB (OBSK) -- anyone sharing in my enthusiasm?

Pouring Maker's Mark pre-made Mint Julep at the moment because I'm too lazy to make one. It's a pretty good drink, IMHO.

Is that the recipe you make yourself and put in the freezer, or do they retail a pre-made julep product? Either way, I don't reckon you can go wrong with a Julep :cool:

I'm thinking BTSOP #10. Looked through the cabinet today and it just seemed to be speaking to me.

Starting with PVW 20 neat and Blanton's, bottled 5-2-05, in a Mint Julep during the festivities. My pick: Union Rags by a 1/2 length over Gemologist

That was a wonderful race. I'm surprised that Bodemeister broke so quickly and set so many marker records. I'll certainly have another, though!

Yes, I will have another. :grin: We had a cookout this evening at our house. My son went to the OTB to place a few bets for us before bringing his family over. Luckily I gave him a few dollars to put on I'll Have Another to win. :woohoo:

The crowd at our party seemed to enjoy my julips made with 1792, and a lot of homegrown mint. I made the mint infusion syrup seperately, so each could mix his/her mint julip according to their own desire and feelings toward bourbon. The kids were given non-alcoholic julips, and they were the only ones to really dislike their drinks.

Made some mint juleps with Old Fitzgerald BiB. Pretty darn tasty.
