Kentucky Derby Returns (2020 Style)

Kentucky Derby Returns (2020 Style)

The race never stopped on the track on this one. Kentucky Derby is this weekend, even if it is making an unusual pit stop in September.

We may not be able to be at the Churchill Downs this year, but we can celebrate the fastest two minutes in sports in style.

While gatherings may not look traditional this year, it’s still a great time to watch at-home with family and friends and pop a bottle of G.H. Mumm – the preferred champagne of the Kentucky Derby. 

Check out these tips from entertaining expert Seri Kertzner on how to embrace the unconventionality of 2020 and “Derby Differently” this year. From food to home decor, friendly wagers and more, her tips and takes are a safe bet to get the party started.

And here are some delicious, Derby inspired cocktails to help get you in the spirit:
