For those of you gearing up for the most disproportionate amount of pre-game coverage to actual sporting event™ in all of American sports, I’d like to direct you to a classic post of mine from last May where I outlined a few great drinks to get you through the six hours of “inside the barn horse talk” and “outside the barn jockey interviews.”
I will leave you with the greatest gin related moment in Kentucky Derby moment in history. From the 1994 Derby a little horse by the name of Go For Gin* won the race.
*I don’t care that the name probably refers to cards and not the spirit. And neither should you. What are you doing reading footnotes on a blog? Don’t you have some cocktails to be making?**
**The Gin/Linguist Wife would like to point out that to “gin” also meant to liven things up. In research that, she also learned that horse trainers also used to put ginger in…places…on a horse to perk it up. Or live eels. Aren’t you glad you read the footnote of the footnote?Share This!
