Food & Wine Pairing: Derby Day

May 5th, 2017

Stock up on bourbon, it’s Derby Day! [level-members]

Actually, tomorrow is Derby Day, but we’re already in the mood.

There are plenty of variations on the iconic mint julep, so take your pick, but we like to keep it simple and classic.

If you’re throwing a party and want to keep it southern, there are always Kentucky Hot Browns – an open-face sandwich.

A sparkling wine seems like the best choice here, though you could always just stick with the juleps …
