The Kentucky Derby, like other sporting events we actually pay attention to, requires an excellent, Kentucky-themed spread of food and drinks. Everyone knows that the mint julep is this day's iconic cocktail, but we want everyone to be equally as well-versed in Kentucky hot browns, burgoo and our new favorite, Benedictine Spread.
It wouldn't be the Kentucky Derby without bourbon! These chocolate-coated bourbon balls are the perfect snack to pop in your mouth while cheering on your favorite horse and jockey. These make great gifts if you are invited to a Derby party! Grab your hat or bow tie, and these bourbon balls, and down a mint julep! Derby Week Bourbon Balls Recipe | Take Two Tapas
