That’s right, the Kentucky Derby is May 3rd this year and that’s my due date. Now I know that the statistics show that I’m unlikely to actually deliver on my due date, but hey – I like that it’s a fabulous reason to celebrate…

  1. Strawberrry Moonshine Mint Julep (Saveur)
  2. Lavender Mint Juleps (Pizzazzerie) – includes a free printable recipe card!
