It's Friday everyone! (and by 'Friday' I mean FriYAY!)
This weekend looks like it's going to be a warm one, so why not chill out with some refreshing drinks? Today I've created a light, summery, fun shot for you and your friends* to enjoy together on this lovely June weekend (*or it could be just for you if you feel like taking 4 shots. I won't judge.).
Well, Ladies and Gents, I present to you- Cool As A Cucumber Shots!
COOL AS A CUCUMBER SHOTS
Servings: 4 shots
Time: 5 minutes
5 Fresh Mint Leaves
8 Thin Slices of Cucumber (approx. 1/8" thick each)
The Kentucky Derby is tomorrow, so today I present you with two takes on the classic Mint Julep... but there's a twist!
In honor of Mother's Day on Sunday, the first of these juleps is a little more grown up and feminine. I call that one the Kentucky Peach Julep.
The second julep I have for you is in honor of Cinco De Mayo (which was yesterday), my dad's birthday (which is today), and the Kentucky Derby (which is tomorrow). I call it the MexiCali Chrome. This julep's secret weapon ingredient is also one of my dad's favorites- Mezcal.
If you don't already know, the Mint Julep is the official drink...
