Concessions at the Derby

The classic Kentucky Derby beverage is the mint julep. Traditionally, the mix of mint leaf, bourbon, sugar and water is served in a silver or pewter cup, though most modern julep fans get their drink in a mere glass. At Churchill Downs, a mint julep will cost you $11.

If you've had enough of traditional fare, the racetrack also sells other alcoholic drinks ($7 to $9) and snacks ($4 to $8) from French fries to sandwiches and even pizza.
