Cinco de Mayo & Kentucky Derby!

4 May

How often do two such spectacular events collide on the same WEEKEND day?  Not often is the answer, so huge celebrations are in order!  Instead of choosing one, why not celebrate both Derby Day and Cinco de Mayo?

Cinco de Mayo
Kick off your Saturday with a Mexican inspired brunch.

Huevos Rancheros

Make the perfect margarita.  You can’t taste the beer but it adds a nice kick!

Snack on some darling pinata cookies

Cinco de Mayo pinata sugar cookies

 And of course, play some Mexican tunes!

 
Kentucky Derby
Pick your pony.  For the last 3 years I’ve somehow blindly picked the winner (seriously!) but of course didn’t wager anything.  This year I have a friendly bet going and will be rooting for Creative Cause.

Meet all the horses here.  Who do you like?

Make a mint julep.  Such a civilized drink.  And the mint makes it so refreshing!

And don’t forget to grab a huge Derby appropriate hat.

 
 Have a fun weekend!
