You should be thinking about drinking some really good cocktails this month. May is so many things to many people, from slamming down Mint Julep after Mint Julep on Kentucky Derby Day (May 4) to more civilized bubbly sipping on Mother’s Day (May 12). Here are some of our favorites—and favorite places—to imbibe this season.
Kentucky Derby celebrations
- III Forks. Who doesn’t love a good rooftop party? Throw in some bourbon and fancy dressing folks, and you’ve suddenly got yourself a great Saturday afternoon. For the occasion, III Forks is doing $5 Maker’s Mark drinks and $5 Mint Juleps in commemorative glasses you get to take home. You’ll need something to soak up all that booze, so servers will be passing around Kentucky-style fried chicken wings and seasoned popcorn. The race will be shown on several monitors on the rooftop. The party happens 2-6pm.
