Really? Well, if that's the case, let my education begin. It starts with the mint julep, which is the drink of choice on the first Saturday in May whilst in Kentucky. I hear that bourbon sales during late April tend to peak in much the same way that sales of champagne and other sparkling wines spike just before New Year's Eve.
At any rate, if Wild Turkey is as good as its word, it does seem fitting that such a high-quality liquor appears in conjunction with some of the highest quality equine flesh in the nation.
In case you're inclined to celebrate "the most exciting two minutes in sports" in traditional style, the mint julep recipe is easy:
Muddle two sprigs of fresh mint in a tumbler.
Add 1.5 teaspoons of brown sugar.
Add 2.5 ounces of Wild Turkey 101.
Add one-half cup of crushed ice, and garnish with a sprig of mint.
Then sip slowly as you tip your Kentucky Derby hat and place your bet.
