Lord Honey, the first Saturday in May is always Kentucky Derby. Benedictine is a true southern staple for this great event, and it is as rooted and steeped in tradition as the Horses running around the track. It's almost as famous as Bourbon. I have taken that great recipe flipped it on its head and made it new and lively again for all to enjoy!!!
