Three Things You Should Drink This Week

I'm trying something a little different for y'all now that bars are (kind of) coming back. Starting this week I'll round up what you should be sipping on for the week — one to enjoy on-location, one to-go and one you can make at home, Happy tippling, folks.

TO STAY
You can get the full steakhouse experience again, and we all know that includes cocktails. If you'll be watching the Kentucky Derby with your friends at Silver Fox Steakhouse, you can don your derby best for the chance to win prizes while watching the most exciting two minutes in sports. Just make sure to order one of the $10 Derby-themed cocktails. I got the most excited about the Kentucky Grazer, which brings together whiskey and Pimms for an intriguing julep-Pimm's cup matchup.

Kentucky Grazer ($10): Maker’s Mark whisky, Pimm', lemon juice, mint

Silver Fox Steakhouse, multiple locations. This cocktail is available for dine-in only.
