Next weekend isn’t just another Bank Holiday; it’s also the Kentucky Derby (on the 2nd -3rd May) – aka ‘the most exciting two minutes in sport’ and where better to watch it than The Whip, the cocktail bar above Mayfair pub, The Running Horse?
To celebrate the mane event (sorry had to be said) they have created a special cocktail the ‘Frankfort’ julep the official drink of the race, with Buffalo Trace, Old Times jam, mint, ginger and peach. And if you whisper the name to the bartender then across the weekend, it’s half price – it’s like being the horse whisperer of cocktails.
There will also be live race screenings and prizes on offer and if your horse wins, you get a shot on the house! Food wise they have created a special southern food menu which will include oyster Po’Boy sandwiches shrimp & grits, banana bourbon pudding and burgoo stew – sounds good to us!
So stop horse-ing around and trot on down to The Whip. And we’ll stop with the horse puns….
