ANNUAL PRE-DERBY PARTY

With the pandemic and the subsequent changes it brings to events, we are working hard to reimagine our beloved Derby celebration! Stay tuned for updates!


The Kentucky Society brings the best of the Derby to the District! Every year on the weekend before Derby, the Kentucky Society puts on a Derby celebration complete with big hats, burgoo, mint juleps, Bluegrass music, bourbon balls, and much more to celebrate the world-famous Run for the Roses. Join us at the gorgeous, water-front River Farm in Alexandria, VA for one of the best parties of the year! But remember, only members are able to purchase tickets.

Until we meet again, give our tried-and-true Mint Julep recipe a try!

MINT JULEP

1/2 oz Simple Syrup
5 Sprigs Mint
 

Combine bourbon and simple syrup in shaker. Add in 12 leaves of mint, muddle. Shake vigorously without ice. Pack julep cup full of crushed ice, strain over ice. Top with more ice to create a mound. Smack bouqet of mint sprigs against back of hand. Garnish with mint, dust with powdered sugar.
