Today marks the beginning of a very eventful weekend in Kentucky. Not only is tomorrow the famous Kentucky Derby race, but today, the festivities commence with a very special event: the Chambord First Lady of Fashion contest.
In an effort to raise money for the Breast Cancer Network of Strength, ladies will be competing at Churchill Downs today to see who can wear pink the most fashionably (you know there will be lots of big hats involved). The gal who is crowned the First Lady of Fashion will win an all-expenses paid VIP trip to IMG Fashion Week in New York City.
During the festivities, participants will be sipping on a signature cocktail that Chambord has created for this special occasion: the Chambord Fleur De Lis. If you can’t make it to Kentucky this weekend, we suggest making this cocktail to get in the derby spirit!
3/4 oz Chambord
3/4 oz Finlandia® Vodka
2 oz lemonade
1 oz cranberry juice
Squeeze of lemon
1. Shake all ingredients with ice and pour into a tall glass. Garnish with a lemon twist and a black raspberry.
