Today! The Kentucky Oaks- Race for the Lilies!

The Kentucky Oaks is a 136 year old horse racing event that features three year old Fillies.

Like it's big brother, the Kentucky Derby, the Kentucky Oaks owns a namesake race, a signature flower and a special cocktail.

The Oaks has recently adopted a signature color as well-PINK (in honor of their signature flower and breast cancer awareness). The Oaks has joined with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Horses and Hope.

Kentucky Oaks: Race 11, 5:45 p.m. EDT post time

The Oaks Lily:

1oz. Vodka

1oz. Sweet and Sour Mix

3oz. Cranberry Juice

Splash of Triple Sec

Mix ingredients, place the pinkish cocktail in a stemless wineglass with crushed ice and garnish with an orange wedge and a cherry!

Have a great day!!!!!!!
