While the Mint Julep is definitely the obvious drink of choice when it comes to Kentucky Derby parties, revelers who aren’t fans of bourbon can sip on vodka-based “Infield Punch” instead. This simple cocktail recipe from Budget Living’s Party Central is basically just fruit punch & vodka garnished with lemon, but it’s so much more fun with a cool name that matches the theme!
2.5 Gallons Red Fruit Punch
1 750 ml bottle vodka, gin, rum, or pure grain alcohol
1 lemon, sliced
Mix punch and liquor in a pitcher. Chill. Just before serving, mix in ice and garnish with lemon slices. Enjoy!
