So the Kentucky Derby is a week(ish) away and to be honest the only thing I know about it is there are horses and mint juleps. And hats. But it’s supposed to be the most exhilarating minute in sports, or something like that? Anywho, I’m celebrating the way I know best, with a cocktail.
You may think hazelnut and mint aren’t a good combo but I promise you my friend, they are. Check out my Hazelnut Mint Julep recipe over on Homes.com for a twist on the original. Gooooooo horses!
In about an hour I’m heading to Asheville, NC for the weekend to have fun before a few very busy weeks of events. I plan to drink local beer and eat local food. Will be glorious. You can follow me on Instagram @jackiefo to check out all my foodie pics.
Now I need to pack because as I mentioned, I’m leaving in an hour and haven’t packed a thing.
Whoops. Cheers and Happy Weekend!
