How to make a Grey Goose Lily (from the Kentucky Oaks)

While exploring the scenery, the excitement, and learning a tiny bit about betting on horses was all in the fun of my first day at Churchill Downs (Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks) in May, a memorable experience of the day came when we entered Millionaires Row — where we were wined   Lilied and dined with buffet, drinks and gambling, not to mention an amazing view from way up high and good times with new friends.

Lilied? One taste of the Grey Goose Lily and the Huz and I knew that this would be our drink of the summer. We came home, grabbed the ingredients and have been delighting in this refreshing mix all spring. (Here’s the Grey Goose official recipe. I like ours better.)

    I hope that dispenser wasn’t plastic! You should never never let any kind of alcoholic drink sit in plastic for an extended period of time!!!!
