Supper Club and Mint Juleps

Kentucky Derby Day, let's get together.

It doesn't take much to get our group going.
But the Mint Juleps did help.

We planned, well really not...
Just said let's come together and watch the Kentucky Derby.

OK, I'll bring my mint julep cups.  I made the simple syrup too.
Whiskey was from Kentucky of course.

Guys hats not so traditional.  But aren't they great to play along.
Diane has a costume closet, no need to bring a hat.

We sang My old Kentucky Home.  None of us are from there
but the words were on the TV.  We were great!

See words on TV, now that is a hat!

Let the 136th running begin.

And afterwards more mint and whiskey anyone?

Oh did I forget to mention that Carol bought an accordion and is
teaching herself to play.  We got Jingle Bells, very good!

and this was before even one Julep was mixed.  Go Carol.

Mint Julep recipe

Simple syrup, bring to a boil one cup water, one cup sugar
once sugar melts add a few snip of mint.

Mix one tablespoon simple syrup with about two ounces of whiskey
I used Woodford Reserve, because hubby thinks it is the best and says that is what they use at the Kentucky Derby.

Pour over ice and serve, with a few fresh mint leaves.


  1. YUM on the mint juleps...what a fun day guys and gals know how to Partay!

  2. Your mint juleps look so festive and I'm sure they tasted great! Sounds like it was a great party. I'm slippin'! Derby Day was a the Relay for Life Event Day for me and I since I walked for 16 hours, I slept during the Derby:( Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

  3. I love love LOVE that ya'll did this! I AM from Kentucky and think this is great!
    Alas, we've been too swamped with end of school things for the kids & a gazillion birthdays, etc. to celebrate The Derby....but I have been dreaming of getting some new mint julep cups!! Yours looked great!

    And I SO APPRECIATE that ya'll even wore hats!!!

    Hugs, Lana
