Kentucky Derby day / Cinco de Mayo

May 7, 2018



So May 5th was not only Cinco de Mayo, but the Kentucky Derby day.  I had to have a mint julep that day. It's pretty much just bourbon, mint, sugar and crushed ice.. (I used agave instead of sugar). 

 I didn't have any Woodford Reserve like they served at the derby, so I used Breckenridge Reserve.

I even had  the traditional metal silver mint julep cups. My wife wanted hers sweeter and I added a little honey to hers.

I took mine outside to watch the sunset, accompanied by my dog, Cullen.

Did you celebrate that day?  What did you drink?
