Or without Mint Julep’s!!!!


So cheers to the Kentucky Derby that will run tonight at

It’s just simple all you need is some Kentucky Bourbon!!!


And the official sliver mug…okay I don’t have that but if you
would go to the Derby your’s would be served in them 🙂

  1. My Kentucky husband would be all over this. I, however, am not a big bourbon fan. That being said I did enjoy Woodford Reserve when we went there! It a pecan fan either so no derby pie for me!

  2. I am playing catch up I am sorry I haven’t visited recently. I have missed so much. I love a good mint julep it is the quintessential drink for the Derby. Love the silver cup.

    • No worries Suzanne, I know you are busy, as am I ;P I feel so lost and unable to catch, I have have a 4 week series of cooking classes and they have really kept me busy…but trying to least soon get a blog up about some of the things I’ve done LOL 🙂 you take care and talk to you soon!!
