I just watched the 2010 Disney movie "Secretariat". What has this to do with bourbon? Well, it takes place in Kentucky, the home of bourbon, for one thing. I was drinking my homebrewed Bavarian weizen, and when I finished my second half-liter of it, the movie was getting to where Secretariat was going to race the Kentucky Derby, the first of the Triple Crown series. I thought to myself, "Self, you should be drinking bourbon during this part of the movie", so I poured myself a few oz.'s of Wild Turkey. An excellent accompaniment to the movie. By the way, if you haven't watched it, rent it. What a feel-good movie. Fantastic.
As I type this I am having a homebrewed Belgian Tripel, and it just dawned on me that this was kind of a coincidence since I just watched a movie about the Triple Crown.
Good way to start off the weekend. By the way, the Derby is only 18.5 hours away. Pour yourself one of your favorite Kentucky bourbon's and enjoy the race.
