The fastest two minutes in sports is surrounded by long-standing traditions and the mint julep is the classic beverage Kentucky Derby watchers will imbibe in. According to the Kentucky Derby’s official website, 120,000 mint juleps will be served at Churchill Downs. Remedy at the Four Seasons Vail will get party goers into the spirit of things by hosting the annual Vail Derby Party, which benefits Children’s Garden of Learning preschool in Vail. 

Over the past month, Steven Teaver, beverage director at the Four Seasons Vail, has been tinkering with the ingredients to create the perfect mint julep.

“I’ve been working on little nuances like building the mint layer and the flavor, not making the drink too sweet and getting the dilution just right,” Teaver said. “You’ve got to use the right crushed ice and the right vessel to make it great.”

In addition to the mint juleps, Teaver is bringing out some very special bourbons from his own collection as well as what he has compiled for the Fours Seasons Vail over the past seven years to pour for guests. More hard to find bourbons can be yours via the silent auction, which will benefit Children’s Garden of Learning.   

“I’ve got the Antique Collection from Buffalo Trace which includes William Larue Weller, a 17-year-old wheated mash bill and it’s been awarded Whiskey of the Year and Liquid Gold titles numerous times but you can’t find this anywhere else,” Teaver said. They’ll even be pulling out the highly sought after Van Winkle whiskeys for the event.  

“On those high-end whiskeys, those older whiskeys, that’s where we’re going to be donating half the proceeds to Children’s Garden of Learning,” Teaver said. “So, think of it this way, get a rare whiskey while giving back to the community. It’s a win-win.”

The Vail Derby party runs from 3 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 4. Tickets are $50 and include two drink tickets and heavy appetizers. Buy your tickets in advance at http://www.eventbrite.com and search for Vail Derby Party. Keep in mind that this event did sell out last year.
