The Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo fall on the exact same day this year and that means you’ll have to find some creative way to celebrate both. Bub City‘s Beverage Director Diane Corcoran cracked this problem with a hybrid cocktail perfect for May 5th — The Cinco de Derby Julep. Stop into Bub City or R.J Grunts this weekend to try Diane’s, or make it at home yourself when the mood strikes.
Cinco de Derby Julep
2 oz. Reposado Tequila
.25 oz. Demerara Syrup
6-8 mint leaves
Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker and dry shake for 2-3 seconds before pouring into a glass with crushed ice. Top with mint bouquet and serve immediately.
