The Drinks You Need to Make on May 5th
With May 5th coming up right around the corner, all things Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo are on the brain!
When both of these events fall on the same day, it's cause for celebration (not that we needed an excuse to celebrate!).
So, below we're giving you a few of our favorite drink recipes, absolutely perfect for any of your Cinco de Mayo or Derby parties!
THE TIPSY FLAMINGO
1 oz. Palm Sugar Syrup
1.5 oz. Tequila
Splash of club soda or sparkling water
In a cocktail glass, squeeze lime, add Palm Sugar, jalapeño slices, tequila, and muddle together. Pssst: our Acacia Wood Muddler is on sale for only $7.99!
Pour in grapefruit juice and stir.
Top with ice and club soda.
Option: For less of a kick, use only one jalapeño slice. Want to lighten up the drink a bit? Cut back on the grapefruit juice and increase club soda.
2 tbsp. Royal Rose Lavender Lemon Syrup
1 oz. Bourbon
4-6 mint leaves
1 sprig of mint
2-4 tbsp. cold water or sparkling water
In a sturdy glass, muddle mint leaves and syrup for 15-20 seconds.
Fill the glass with crushed ice.
Pour bourbon on top of ice.
Add a splash of water or sparkling water.
Garnish with a sprig of mint and you're off to the races!
