A huge crisis is on the horizon.
The Kentucky Derby falls on the same day as Cinco de Mayo.
What are we going to drink?!?!?
For those of you who can’t choose between the classic Mint Julep and Margarita, just do what I plan on doing, and mix them together!
This Mint Julep Margarita blends the most basic versions of both drinks into a fantastic hybrid.
First step is to make the mint syrup. Add some water to sugar and mint, bring to a simmer, and let it sit for about 20 minutes.
Bourbon, tequila, lime, and mint syrup into the shaker.
Salt the rim of a glass and fill with ice. Pour in the drink and serve!
Cinco only comes once a year. Isn’t it time for something muy especial? Get your fiesta on with Enchilada Soup, Margarita Cupcakes and other Neo-Mexican originals.
