Spring is here and you know what that means...it’s Derby time! Howdy y’all it’s Chelsea Dobbie, your favorite Aussie and the Ranch’s Special Reports and World Traveller, and I’m here to discuss the Kentucky Derby which is what I consider to be an ace of a topic. I might be from down under but I know a good American celebration when I see one. Going to the States for the Derby makes me as happy as a baby joey sittin’ in his momma’s pouch. Don’t know much about the Derby? Don’t worry, that’s what I’m here for! Read on to learn about the history of this iconic horse race and why it’s so dang special. We even have a drink recipe up our sleeve, and trust us, you won’t want to miss it.
Introducing the Kentucky Derby
It’s no secret that Red Stag is all about fun and games (not to mention winning), so it should come of no surprise to know that we love us some Derby Goodness. We’ll find any excuse to Catch the Winning Spirit! It comes natural to us Ranchers to celebrate a good race, especially if there’s bourbon involved. After All, sippin’ and winnin’ is what Red Stag Ranch is all about. Now, enough about us, let’s get to the good stuff.
Kentucky is known for its mean fried chicken, crazy hats, the Louisville Slugger, delicious bourbon, and of course, the world-famous Kentucky Derby. The Derby started back in 1875 and is considered the longest-running sports event in the United States. Also known as the “Run for the Roses” this 1.25 miles horse race is so bloody special that over 150,000 people gather every year to place bets and have heaps of fun. The race occurs the first Saturday of May and serves as the grand finale to the epic two-week-long Kentucky Derby Festival.
The Derby is nothin’ short of a good time. This event manages to marry tradition, elegance, enjoyment, and good ol’ fashion American values. The winning horse gets dressed in roses, women wear big flamboyant hats and beautiful dresses, the crowds sing Southern American classics like “My Old Kentucky Home” and everyone gets to test their luck on the track...There’s nothing more exciting than watching your pick pull through and win the race! The Kentucky Derby is brimming with hope, fashion, and spirit!
Bets and Bourbon
Now that y’all know a little bit more about the Derby, it’s time to move on to the drink aspect. The Kentucky Derby and Mint Julep cocktails go hand in hand. It’s pretty much safe to say that one cannot exist without the other. Mint Julep is the event’s iconic drink and it has been for years because, the state of Kentucky is home to some of the best bourbon in the world… and you know how we feel about good alcohol here at The Ranch, we love it so much we even named our VIP Club after liquor.
There are many things to love about this Kentucky born liquor like, did you know bourbon is America's only native spirit? Or that bourbon must be made from at least 51% corn? It’s practically a liquid vegetable!
Anyway, back to the Mint Julep, the Derby Classic, because it’s recipe time! In order to celebrate the Kentucky Derby correctly, we suggest you drink a cocktail or two. A Mint Julep cocktail is a surefire way to embrace the spring and honour the Derby while getting you into a lucky mood.
- First, you take 8 to 12 mint leaves and place them into a cup.
- Add crushed ice, simple syrup, bourbon of your choice (the higher the proof the better)
- With a final splash of water, finish filling the glass with more crushed ice and stir.
You may garnish with a mint spring if you’d like and sit back and enjoy your American bred grog. If you’re not able to attend the Derby this year, no drama, you can get to gamin’ with Red Stag while sippin’ on this springtime beverage. Check your email or Casino account for today’s bonus, then take a spin on Cash Cow or Funky Chicks, to get you in that Derby mood. Hope you enjoyed this week’s blog, I’m Chelsea Dobbie and I’m signing out. Happy gamin’ Rodeo Riders, talk to you soon!
