KENTUCKY DERBY: Last-Minute Party

If you’re not celebrating Cinco de Mayo tomorrow, you’ve got a second option: The Kentucky Derby.

It’s not too late to invite a few friends over for cocktails. Smack in the middle of Cocktail Hour is the Kentucky Derby.

You can keep it casual, but invite everyone to wear their most festive hats, Kentucky Derby-style.

Here are three recipes to go with the hats.


  • Classic Mint Julep
  • Run For The Roses Cocktail: sweet tea, vodka and peach schnapps
  • South Side Cocktail, a variation on the mint julep, made with your favorite white spirit instead of Bourbon
    And they’re off!
