Run for the Roses Cocktail


Run for the Roses Cocktail - from Grey Goose Vodka

This Run for the Roses cocktail is a delightful mixed drink that Grey Goose revealed to celebrate the 135th Kentucky Derby. It is filled with flavors of the South including orange and peach with a traditional Southern iced tea to bring it all together. I think the rose petal garnish is a very nice touch and you have to love any drink with a Chambord float. As intended, this could be used as a great alternative to the Derby's traditional Mint Julep.
