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?
