Cinco de Kentucky Derby

Wait…what? This year Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby fall on the same day. So I thought about bringing together two of my favorite adult beverages that are synonymous with each of their prospective holidays, Tequila and Mint Juleps.

4 Mint Sprigs
2.5 oz Tequila Reposado
1tsp Powdered Sugar
1tsp Water

Muddle the mint, water and sugar in a Highball glass. Add crushed ice and pour tequila over top, add more ice until it forms a mound. Garnish with a spring of mint. Enjoy!
