It’s hard to believe that May is here! With May’s arrival comes several festivities that are worth celebrating, May Day, Cinco De Mayo, Oyster Day and the Kentucky Derby! This weekend 20 horses will proudly compete in the Kentucky Derby in Louisville, Kentucky. The Derby, often referred to as “The Run for the Roses”, has many traditions including garlands of roses, large hats and the mint juleps. In honor of the Derby, this week we are sipping on Apple Mint Juleps. The Apple Mint Julep is our take on the traditional cocktail. These juleps are perfect for with or without the alcohol and make a great addition to your Derby soiree. The race starts at approximately 6:24 PM this Saturday, so make sure you have your Apple Mint Julep in tow as you cheer on Orb!
