The 2012 Kentucky Derby will be run for the 138th time on Saturday, May 5th at Churchill Downs. Some say that the Kentucky Derby is the greatest two minutes in sports, and I agree! If you are having a get-together, see below for some Kentucky Derby party ideas for your event.
In addition to Mint Juleps, Mimosas are another drink of choice before the Derby event or at brunch the day after! Also, don’t miss the Kentucky Derby Party menu via southernliving.com complete with ham buscuits and bourbon truffles.
