Beverage Breakdown

This Saturday marks two fun events, The Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo! Both have their known cocktails...the Mint Julep and Margaritas! Whether your throwing on a big hat, or a sombrero, these recipes will be sure to quench your thirst...

The Mint Julep-always known as a Derby staple!  For each serving: Crush 4 cups of ice. In a pint glass or cocktail shaker, use a wooden muddler to muddle 8 mint leaves and a teaspoon of brown sugar. Add 2 ounces of Maker's and stir. Pack a classic pewter julep cup with ice until overflowing. Strain bourbon mixture into cup. Stir drink until the outside of the cup frosts. Top with more ice, garnish with a fresh mint spring, and serve

The Classic Margarita- tequila always makes a celebration fun, especially for Cinco de Mayo! Here is an amazing margarita recipe you will love! They're super easy and are the perfect classic margarita. To change it up a bit, add Mountain Dew instead of 7up! OLE!
