For many reasons I legitimately can’t believe that The Kentucky Derby is just a few short weeks away. Namely because this year is flying by, but also because for the first time ever I’ll be attending Oaks and The Derby – which is cause for celebration in and of itself. 

To celebrate that occasion I’ve teamed up with the team at Ale-8-One to share the recipe for their Jubil8 cocktail – their riff on the classic Mint Julep that’s a mainstay this time of the year in Louisville and surrounding areas.
