While picking the winner of the Kentucky Derby is all luck, we know which jockey Bourbon fans should take a chance on. Mixologist Rob Floyd created this winning cocktail to enjoy while watching "The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports" at Churchill Downs.

Basil Hayden's Jockey's Julep:

 • 2 parts Basil Hayden's Bourbon
 • 8 to 10 Mint Leaves
 • 8 Blueberries
 • 1 part Fresh Lime Juice
 • 3/4 parts Simple Syrup

Directions: Muddle mint leaves and blueberries in a mixing glass. Add remaining ingredients and shake over ice. Fine strain into a rocks glass with crushed ice. Garnish with blueberries and a sprig of mint.
