Kentucky Derby

Good morning readers. Lots going on this weekend. Kentucky Derby. Wanted to include my Mint Julip recipe. You will need to do the mint simple syrup. This is a very strong drink. But very Yummy. Got the recipe from the show Creative Juice. The recipe for the simple syrup is: 2 cups water, 2 cups sugar in a sauce pan over medium heat, stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour into a glass bowl. Add a large handful of Fresh Mint. Stems and leaves. Press down into the syrup with a spoon. Plastic wrap top of bowl and put into fridge, 1 hour at least. Pour infused simple syrup into a glass pitcher. Will look nice with the mint in there. Keep in fridge. For each drink, use crushed ice.  If you don’t have a derby glass that’s Ok. A short fat glass will do the same. Add 1 shot simple syrup. and 2 shots whiskey. Stir. Garnish with a fresh mint sprig. I use Woodford Reserve Kentucky Whiskey for this drink. But what ever brand you want will be fine. The drink starts out very strong, but gets sweeter as you drink it. And don’t forget to wear your special hat!

400 Red Roses are used in the Kentucky Derby garland of roses given to the winning jockey and horse.

If you are ever in that area when the race is not going on, Take the time to do the Tour of Churchill Downs. It is very interesting and fun. IMG_0422IMG_0442Enjoy the Race everyone. Have a great Weekend.

All the riders and the horses, Be Safe! Have a good race!

CINCO DE MAYO

Tomorrow is the day.Contrary to popular belief, Cinco De Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day. The Holiday is a celebration of the Mexican Army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War, which lasted from 1861-1867. Although Cinco De Mayo seems like a popular holiday in the US, Mexican Independence Day, on September 16, is a much bigger celebration.

In American Culture, Cinco De Mayo has become a holiday for everyone to enjoy festivals, fiestas, Latin food and lots of alcohol for the adult crowd.

Enjoy!
