Derby day social

Tipsy Parson hosted their 5th annual Kentucky Derby party this year with Garden and Gun Magazine as the Sponsor. Cocktails were by Bulleit Frontier Whiskey and there was a contest for best dressed hosted by Vineyard Vines. The bluegrass band played all day as people wearing fabulous fancy hats and fitted seersucker suits dined on a delicious Southern spread and sipped (a lot) of beautiful bourbon cocktails.

The Odd Man Out: Bulleit, roasted beet, cinnamon syrup, lemon juice, Fino sherry, bitters, sage.


The prettiest pickled fruit and vegetable spread.

The pickled strawberries & raspberries were such a sweet and sour surprise.


The Tipsy Palmer: Bulleit Bourbon, sweat tea, lemon and mint.


Deviled eggs and pimento chesse finger sandwiches.


It wouldn’t be Derby day without cold mint juleps and these were made with a lot of ice and lots of Bulleit bourbon.
