Mint Juleps & Margaritas

This weekend is full of exciting holidays(Derby Day and Cinco de Mayo) and that means lots of delicious cocktails to help celebrate these exciting holidays! Luckily this year these holidays don’t fall on the same day so there is no need to choose between beverages, instead each cocktail can have its own day to shine: Mint Juleps Saturday & Margaritas Sunday!

For Saturday, I already know I will enjoy a classic Mint Julep. However, Sunday leaves many decisions to be made as there are many variations and flavors of Margaritas to choose from. Below are a couple recipes I will be deciding from for this year’s Cinco de Mayo celebrations:

MangoRita

  • 1½ parts Avion Tequila
  • 1 part Hiram Walker® Mango Schnapps
  • ¼ part Hiram Walker® Triple Sec
  • ½ part Lime Juice

Shake or blend with ice into salt-rimmed margarita glass

Mini Margaritas

  • 1 part Malibu Red
  • ½ Part Hiram Walker Triple Sec
  • ½ Part Fresh Lime

Shake and strain into a shot glass

Classic Margarita

  • 1 part Hiram Walker® Triple Sec
  • 2 parts Avion Tequila
  • 1 part Fresh Lime Juice

Shake & strain into a salt-rimmed rocks glass.

Get creative with your drinks and have a safe and happy Kentucky Derby & Cinco de Mayo weekend!
