We're back with awesome party ideas for the Kentucky Derby on Pinterest

Pinterest/The Daily Meal

And we're back! Welcome to week two of our "Best of..." boards on Pinterest.

Now, while many of you enjoyed the Cinco de Mayo board, let's not forget that this week is two-fold in holidays: Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby. So get all your mashup ideas ready... We're thinking cheese-garlic-grits quesadillas — sound good? In any case, May 5 is going to be double the fun and why not be prepared?

The funny thing about the Kentucky Derby is that all the trimmings — the hats, the dresses, the juleps — are all prepared for a race that lasts just about two minutes, but no one cares! The party is still kicking no matter the time. With that said, we're here to provide you with the craftiest, most delicious, and original recipes and party ideas from the Pinterestphere.

Head over to our Best of...the Kentucky Derby board to pin your favorite ideas and keep checking back, as we'll be here all week — our pins are just beginning!

Happy Pinning!

If you're curious, next week's board will be... Mother's Day! Stay tuned!


Oaks Lilly recipes 2021: This pink cocktail became the drink of the Kentucky Oaks

Tim Laird remembers rounding the corner toward the single bar serving the Oaks Lily in the cocktail's first year.

He could already glimpse a line when he bumped into Churchill Downs' head of concessions, who had decided not to serve the drink at more than one bar.

"Don't say anything, I know," Laird said the official told him, guiltily.

This year, Churchill Downs will again feature the Lily as the Kentucky Oaks official cocktail, serving it as an alternative to the famous Kentucky Derby drink: the mint julep.

Laird, the former chief entertaining officer for Brown-Forman, was responsible for creating the Lily in 2006 and said it is based on a cosmopolitan, with a hot pink color that mimics the stargazer lilies draped over the winning filly's shoulders.

Laird said Oaks Lily cocktails at Churchill taste slightly different now than in 2006 because the track uses a different vodka and pre-makes batches instead of making them fresh. But the drink is still refreshing for the spring whether sipped at the track or at home.

"It's one of those cocktails that appeals to everybody," Laird said. "The mint julep is a drink that you really have to love if you're going to have two or three. But this is such a refreshing drink, especially on a hot day."
