The Kentucky Derby-inspired cocktail, “Local Hero,” is named after the #28 horse competing in this year’s race. Race fans and guests alike can enjoy the cocktail for $15 and it will be available during the weekend of the derby, May 5 and 6.
The “Local Hero” is made with Makers 46, Montenegro Amaro, simple syrup, muddled best mint and club soda garnished with fresh best mint. Best mint, also known as spearmint, is known for being delicate and sweet and is a fresh addition to a simple classic drink.
