How to make classic cocktails like the Mint Julep, plus unique ones like the Pomegranate Bourbon.

Are you ready for the Kentucky Derby this Saturday? I sure am. I don't know what it is about watching that race each year that gets me so excited, but I always look forward to taking in the action. (Maybe I'm just nostalgic for the South?) Attending the Kentucky Derby is definitely on my bucket list, but even if you aren't lucky enough to be at Churchill Downs wearing a fancy hat and living it up equestrian style, you can still have a great time with your friends while watching the race.

All you need is a few plates of fancy hors d'oeuvres, and of course, the perfect cocktails to sip while you admire the hats. Here are 5 yummy libations to mix up and enjoy.
