Best Things to Drink at Your Tailgate Party

It’s always the food that gets all our care and attention when we’re preparing for a tailgate. With so much focus on between grilling chicken wings, serving up steaming bowls of chili, and making sure you’ve packed everybody’s favorite condiments, drinks are often overlooked. Now, we’re not saying that they’re ever forgotten (that would be the worst tailgating mistake you could make), but rather that they deserve a little more love and attention: They will be central to your tailgate party after all.

Benchwarmer Cocktail

This year, celebrate Derby Day like they do at Churchill Downs.

The Kentucky Derby is finally here! Every year since 1946, The Kentucky Derby has been held the first Saturday of May.

On May 1, fans will be able to tune in to NBC to watch the 147th Kentucky Derby race. While a limited number of spectators will be there in person at the historic Churchill Downs racetrack in Louisville, Kentucky, the great bulk of fans will be watching from home. So why not toss on your fanciest hat and host a Kentucky Derby party at home? Stir up some cocktails and make some easy apps, and tune in from the comfort of your couch.
