Derby Day - Next Saturday, May 3rd!

The players are listed below but the final field of horses won't be set until probably Friday. Here are the Derby CONTENDERS
The names will be numbered and thrown into a hat to determine the order of how your horses will be picked. It looks like everyone will have at least 2 picks and 2 people will have 3 picks. You'll have to check back next Saturday to see who your picks are. It's Derby time in the Bluegrass!

Hmmm . . . two contenders with 3 picks. I wonder if we could draft one more family member like Kay, Jeff, or Mark to compete . . .

Nope - sorry - the people listed are in the order they responded to the original blog entry. If you don't check the blog, you don't get to play.

The Early Times Mint Julep Recipe
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
Sprigs of fresh mint
Crushed ice
Early Times Kentucky Whisky (or other premium KY whiskey)
Silver Julep Cups
Make a simple syrup by boiling sugar and water together for five minutes. Cool and place in a covered container with six or eight sprigs of fresh mint, then refrigerate overnight. Make one julep at a time by filling a julep cup with crushed ice, adding one tablespoon mint syrup and two ounces of Early Times Kentucky Whisky. Stir rapidly with a spoon to frost the outside of the cup. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
I have a nice UK ball cap Mary can wear. :)
