Delicious Drinks to Pair With the Many Events Happening This Weekend

Image
Not only is it a busy weekend here in the lake area with the Magic Dragon Car Show happening up the street from JB Hook's and the Spring Harbor Hop cruising back and forth below us on the water, but there's also more! Saturday, May 4, the Kentucky Derby will be broadcast on our TVs in the piano bar and on Sunday, May 5, according to the calendar, it's Cinco de Mayo. (Margaritas anyone?) In today's blog, our Lake of the Ozarks bar has a few drink ideas that pair perfectly with all of these events and celebrations.


The Kentucky Derby
This year will mark the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby. Fine thoroughbreds will compete for the crown and everyone watching will be donning their finest and sipping classic Southern cocktails. Kentucky bourbon seems like the perfect drink to enjoy while watching the race and JB Hook's has a couple of signature bourbon cocktails that you're going to love.

JB Hook's is widely known for having the best seafood and steak at the Lake of the Ozarks. That's great news for anyone that happens to love either of those foods, but if you love both of them, choosing can be a tough decision. Luckily, you don't have to choose! The delicious items featured in the Surf 'n' Turf portion of our menu offer you the best of both worlds, all on one plate!


What is Surf 'n' Turf? 
The phrase Surf 'n' Turf refers to a main course that combines seafood and red meat. The "surf" portion gives you a taste of delicious items that once lived underwater and the "turf" is generally classified as a grass-fed land animal, most typically steak.
