A few years back, I was lucky enough to get to attend the Kentucky Derby. I had the most fun. Even though I am more or less an indoor kid who does not care about sports, I had fun betting on ponies and getting into the Derby mood. I loved getting dressed up, I loved wearing a fascinator, and of course, I loved all the cocktails and snacks.
Today, in partnership with Finlandia Vodka, I am excited to share a delightful Derby day Oaks Lily cocktail recipe (though it’s so good you will want to make it all year round!) Are you watching the Derby next weekend? I highly recommend making this!
Meet the Oaks Lily, the signature drink of the Kentucky Oaks. It’s not too sweet, and just delicious!
Oaks Lily Cocktail Recipe:
- 3 parts cranberry juice
- 1 part sour mix (or fresh lime juice, which is what I used)
- 1/4 part Triple Sec
- 1 part FINLANDIA vodka
combine all ingredients over ice and garnish with a lime wedge!
