7 Best Bourbons for Your Kentucky Derby Party 

Anyone who knows the pain of going to a Super Bowl party exclusively for the drinks and snacks, only to find they’re trapped in a room with people who actually want to watch the game, will revel in the Kentucky Derby this May 5. Why? Because the entire race lasts less than five minutes, allowing you to focus on things you care about, like booze, and maybe fun hats. It’s truly the perfect sporting event for anyone who likes the idea of sports, but doesn’t want to watch or participate in them.

Since you’re focusing on everything other than the main event, you’ll probably find yourself deeply invested in the only thing more quintessential to the Kentucky Derby than horses—bourbon. With the infamous Kentucky Bourbon Trail is just down the road from Churchill Downs, it only makes sense that bourbon and the Derby go hand-in-hand. That’s why we’ve rounded up the best bourbons on the market to help you celebrate one of the shortest sporting events out there. Check it out on Parade.

If you're big into cocktails, you know it's difficult to get a good one when you don't have the mixology tools from your at-home bar cart on-hand.  Who brings a muddler to the beach, right?  That's where this Road Soda Cocktail Kit ($60, Huckberry) comes in.  It has everything you need to make a great cocktail on the go (a mini funnel, a collapsible jigger, a shaker, and more), all contained in one compact, portable container.

MiniPresso

If you love espresso, you know how hard it is to find a good one — especially while traveling. Hotel and airport coffee tends to be abysmal and if you're somewhere without even subpar amenities (read: the great outdoors), it gets worse.  Good news, though! Your caffeine-related prayers have been answered ... by the MiniPresso ($50).

Rose All Day Carry On Cocktail Kit

Flying used to be a treat, but nowadays, it's something to be endured. Airlines are trying to cram as many people as they can into tiny planes, and something goes wrong so often that you are genuinely surprised when your flight actually takes off on time. Drink service is often limited, and forget about getting anything that even resembles something close to a meal. 

Help yourself actually enjoy flying again (that is, if you ever did in the first place) by bringing along this Rose All Day Carry On Cocktail Kit ($20, Huckberry). Just snag yourself a mini bottle of liquor and cup from the flight attendant and you've got everything else you need to make a high-quality cocktail—seriously, there are Sugarfina Rose Gummy Bears in the kit—while you're flying high in the sky.

Bodum Chambord French Press 

Everyone has a different preference when it comes to how they want to get their morning coffee. Some want to down multiple cups from a huge pot before they walk out the door; others don't want to bother with it at all, preferring to pick up a fancy concoction every day at their local coffee shop on the way to the office.

If you're somewhere in the middle of those two things, we strongly recommend the French press.

The brew process is one of the easiest, least expensive ways to make great coffee. It's decidedly low-tech: All you need is some hot water, ground coffee, the device, and some arm muscles to press the coffee.

Want to give it a try? Check out the Bodum Chambord French Press ($37, Amazon). Read the rest on The Kitchn.
