Make The Woodford Spire For Kentucky Derby

Recreate all of the excitement of Churchill Downs at home with the 3-ingredient Woodford Spire, Woodford Reserve’s signature Kentucky Derby Cocktail.

By: Tiff Christie|May 1,2021

While your first instinct today might be to make a Mint Julep as part of your  Kentucky Derby celebrations, Woodford Reserve is suggesting you might want to hold off.

Rather than muddling mint and adding Bourbon and water to a Julep cup, the Kentucky Whiskey brand is suggesting you instead mix that Bourbon with lemonade and Cranberry Juice to make their new Derby cocktail The Woodford Spire.

While the mint Julep may still be the official drink of the race, the 3-ingredient Woodford Spire, is Woodford Reserve’s signature Kentucky Derby Cocktail. Officially launched in 2018, it is easy to make one or a batch in just a few minutes so you won’t miss any of the race.
