NCAA March Madness is proud to offer the some celebratory shots during March Madness NCAA Basketball Tournament.  Because tonight’s game of UK Wildcats vs. IU Hoosiers is such a rivalry for us here in Bourbon Country, we’re having some fun with it in the shots we have created below.

In the past we have offered Celebratory Shots for Final Four Finishes. Once again, we chose spirits common to their geographic areas of origin.

So, take your pick with your favorite team as you cheer or jeer with these fun shots! What will John Calipari or Tom Crean be drinking?

Keep coming back as we’ll bring you more  for the Final Four on March 31, April 2 in New Orleans, Louisiana for the Championship.

    Kidd-gilchrist needs to watch what he says in post-game interviews. Indiana didn’t make a “lucky shot” the first time they played, Kentucky just didn’t play like a #1 team, and they still aren’t.
