Cinco de Derby Cocktail

Published on May 8th, 2018

Spring has officially arrived!  Welcome it by treating yourself with a refreshing Cinco de Derby cocktail in hand.  A perfect blend of tequila and whiskey rye, which can be substituted with bourbon as per your preference.

In a mason jar or a heavy glass add mint, lime juice, simple syrup and muddle lightly.  Don’t overdo it or it will make the mint bitter. 

Fill the glass halfway with crushed ice.

Pour the rest of the ingredients over crushed ice and stir.

Garnish with a mint sprig and serve it with a straw. Enjoy!
