The Oaks Lily



This is the recipe for the signature drink at The Oaks. Oaks Day is the day before the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. Many Kentuckians attend the Oaks, and attire is about the same as it is on Derby Day. We always have fun at Oaks Day. We served this drink at our Derby Party, and it was a success.

Ingredients:

For an individual Lily ~
1 oz. vodka
1 oz. sweet and sour mix
3 oz. cranberry juice
splash of triple sec

For a large group ~
32 oz. vodka
32 oz. sweet and sour mix
96 oz. cranberry juice
1 oz. triple sec

Actually, I made this in pitchers and served it from a crystal drink dispenser. When the ingredients are mixed, place the pinkish cocktail in a stemless wine glass with crushed ice. Add a straw and garnish with an orange wedge and cherry.
