Bloody Mary is a traditional tomato and vodka based drink with lots of spices to give it that extra flare. A Bloody Derby has a Kentucky spin on it by adding in bourbon instead of vodka. Try this at your next Kentucky Derby party, or just to see flavor difference, it may even become a new favorite.
