Lily Punch

Derby is in the air! It’s Derby week in Kentucky and if you live anywhere close, you can feel the excitement build each day until the first Saturday in May.

There are many things that are staples of the big day; horses, bourbon balls, hats, dresses, pastel suits, and of course drinks. It’s almost impossible to visit the Kentucky Oaks or Derby without mentioning the amazing cocktails that are a huge part of the weekend.

If you’re a frequent visitor to the Derby or Oaks, it may seem like the Grey Goose Oaks Lily has been around since the Mint Julep. In actuality, it was only brought to the Oaks as its official drink in 2006. That’s only 11 years!

I remember going to the Oaks in 2007 or 2008 and having my first Lily and loving every second of it. I decided to recreate it and increase the quantity of the original recipe to make a larger Lily Punch that you could serve to a crowd at your Derby or Oaks party.

It has cranberry, vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup, and orange liqueur. If bourbon’s not your jam, then this cocktail will definitely be up your street.
