Wink 05/05/07 - Mint Juleps or Margaritas?

For the first time that I can recall the Kentucy Derby falls on Cinco De Mayo! I'm trying to convince my family that we need to don our giant somberos and drink up Mint Juelps and Margaritas! I figure Mojitos too since they're kind of like Mint Juleps' illegitimate baby.

What will you be sipping on this Saturday?

I might be at a Polish bar, so there's a chance I'll be having both w/ a side order of pierogies.

I graduate from college this Saturday...so I'm sure I'll be drinking something. We have a huge bottle of mojito mix on the table, so that could be very tempting...

Or maybe I'll just take a flask of tequila to graduation and tell them that I'm celebrating Cinco de Mayo. It could work!

I'm not that refined. I'm gonna try to make Kentucky Derby pie though, that stuff is amazing! You could just do shots of tequila and peppermint schnapps alternately and be really trashy.
Here's to a safe and well-run Derby. Not sure I could go through another Barbaro situation (that would be the horselover in me though).

I have our Pansy Brunch in the morning. I think most of the alumnae in my chapter frown upon the drink.

What time is the derby?

OH Dolphin Chica, Just tell everyone the truth... You are classy and drink Pinot from a juice box.

Both!

I'm drinking both, and having fajitas and Derby Pie, too. I throw a big party every year to celebrate my ultra-southerness-- south of the Mason-Dixon and South of the Border-- heritages. You should see my derby hat-- quite a festive little sombrero.

i would LOVE to see ladies at the Derby wearing sombreros. i have been giggling all day at work thinking about this.

I have been tempted to call my mom but she just wouldn't get it. She would be too busy being appalled and holding her gloved hand to her forehead and clutching her pearls. LOL.
