The famous Kentucky Derby cocktail, nicknamed the Oaks Lilly, is a staple of this prestigious horse race. With a distinctive pink hue that nods to both the garland of stargazer lilies placed on the winning filly and to the event’s association with breast cancer awareness, this boozy concoction has become a symbol of all things Derby.
While the initial serving of this iconic beverage is always accompanied by elaborate festivities, attendees continue to order Oaks Lillies throughout the day in support of this important cause.
Whether decked out in colorful hats and suits or donning more subtle shades of pink, visitors show their passion for both horses and charity by enjoying these classic cocktails throughout the day.
Indeed, for those lucky enough to attend this festive racing event, sipping on an Oaks Lily truly is synonymous with Southern hospitality at its finest.
