CHURCHILL DOWNS — Heading over to Churchill Downs to bet on the ponies this weekend?

Why not spend your Oaks and Derby winnings on a mint julep? A $1000 mint julep, that is.

Woodford Reserve is the “official” bourbon of the Kentucky Derby and celebrates the annual honor by offering a special mint julep for a special cause.

The costly concoction will set you back a cool grand, with part of the proceeds going to benefit the Wounded Warrior Equestrian Program charity.

KSTV’s Bradley McKee went in for a taste, finding out how to mix up the drink of the Derby.
