It's almost the Kentucky Derby -- which means it's time to pick out your finest wide-brimmed hat, pour yourself a tall glass of bourbon, and get rowdy in front of the television. Here are some elegant, Southern-inspired snacks and drinks to sustain you -- because cheering for a horse race feels a lot classier than football. Hold onto your hats, people!
