Abby, our social media director, is headed to the Kentucky Derby this weekend! (We’re just a bit envious.) For today’s “5 Things,” we’re suggesting a few ways that you can partake in the festivities from your own home!
Make a Kentucky Bourbon Butter Cake—and feel free to invite us over for a slice!

Whip up some mint juleps while you watch the race—and if you’re looking for a non-alcoholic version, try Caitlin’s!

Make your own festive drink stirrers! We found these gorgeous ones on Food52—unfortunately they’re sold out, so we’re using them as inspiration.

Give Kentucky-made mini bourbon bottles to any weekend guests—the perfect memento for their bar carts at home.
