Derby Day Happy Hour at The Cooper in Palm Beach Gardens

Derby Day is coming to Palm Beach Gardens on May 5 as The Cooper hosts “The Kentucky Derby Happy Hour,’’ from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The festivities will include Derby-inspired cocktails such as the Kentucky Oaks Lily – a mix of vodka, sweet and sour mix, triple sec, cranberry juice, and muddled blackberries – and Run for the Roses, which combines Woodford bourbon, house-made lemonade, and cranberry juice.

The Cooper’s Derby menu includes the Kentucky Hot Brown,  an open-faced sandwich with shaved roasted turkey breast on rye toast with pimento-Mornay sauce, tomato, and applewood bacon; Derby Devil Eggs with maple bourbon bacon and an Espelette sprinkle; and Cornmeal Fried Green Tomatoes with pickled watermelon radish and house-made buttermilk ranch dressing.
