Kentucky Derby- May 5th

Dom and I love to watch horse races.  When we lived in Slidell, LA, we frequented an off-track betting parlor.

I and 3 co-workers at a local newspaper bought a racehorse without getting the “OK” from our husbands.  What fun!  “Capetown Caper”.  We broke his maiden.  Oh, the fun times!

We’ll be enjoying these libations from SPARKLING ICE:

Peachy Mint Julep


1.25 ounces Bourbon
2 ounces Sparkling Ice Peach Nectarine
6 Mint leaves
Half a Peach


Muddle mint and peach in highball glass.* Add crushed ice, bourbon and Sparkling Ice Peach Nectarine. Stir ingredients thoroughly
*(If possible, muddle mint and peach, add bourbon and leave overnight in fridge)

Triple Crown Lemonade

2 parts Anejo Tequila
4 muddled Basil leaves
Teaspoon Agave Syrup
2 parts Sparkling Ice Classic Lemonade
Shake and pour over ice into Highball glass. Top with Sparkling Ice Classic Lemonade. Garnish with Basil leaf
