This month’s mixology series serves as an introduction to the history, composition and taste profile of Derby Day Cocktails. Four signature specials headline the class: The Mint Julep, The Seelbach, The Crown of Roses and for the straight shooters among us... Bourbon. Not only will you discover the history and fun stories behind Derby Day Cocktails, but you'll learn how to craft your own! And what kind of Southern hospitality would we be showing if we didn't offer taste tests to our guests Taking the class is a no brainer – but deciding which over-the-top floppy hat to wear to the event?
