Carson and Siri Daly are off to the races in the kitchen, cooking up recipes to celebrate the Kentucky Derby. They show us how to make a grapefruit-infused rosemary julep (especially good if mint isn't really your thing!), Southern fried chicken sliders and cheesy baked grits.

Siri's Fried Chicken Sliders

Crispy fried chicken on a soft, buttery roll ... is there anything better? The flour is spiced perfectly to add a little kick to the chicken, and a sweet, crunchy pickle with creamy mayo bring it all together.

Siri's Baked Cheese Grits Cups

Carson grew up eating cheesy grits that his mom prepared with their proper Southern breakfasts, and preparing them in individual ramekins is a fun twist on a traditional classic.

Siri's Grapefruit-Rosemary Julep

The tart citrus juices and the earthy rosemary combined with the sweet agave syrup make this drink irresistibly refreshing. A splash of club soda adds a fun fizz, but is not necessary.
