Rye House

Mint Juleps and Fried Chicken, Kentucky Derby Pregame

On Kentucky Derby Saturday, I took a break from the LUCKYRICE Festival and grabbed some mint juleps and southern comfort food with B and C. The Rye House was celebrating with a special $10 mint julep menu ($5 refills and you get to keep the steel cup & stir-straw). I stuck to the Smoked Julep, which consisted of Buffalo Trace Bourbon Whiskey, Cinnamon Bark Syrup, and Lapsong Souchong Infused Black Strap Rum. We also ordered a huge bucket of fried chicken; it was absolutely AMAZING. The meat was juicy and well-seasoned, while the skin was thin and crispy. If we went again, I probably would've pulled a Cartman. (Just kidding!)
