Guess what? The 140th Kentucky Derby is less than a week away (May 2nd & 3rd, 2014) I’ve created a cocktail to you help celebrate the races & to assist y’all in celebrating any time at all!

I’ve paired non alcohol apple cider with very boozy Knob Creek Kentucky bourbon…voila!….Bourbon & Cider Delight. Oh happy days!

Aren’t these glasses AMAZING?!

I really cannot remember for the life of me where the heck I got them. Some antiques store somewhere. All I remember is when I saw them I freaked out. Instant love at first sight.

I also fell in love with this Taylor Brands pocket knife that I bought in Austin.

Sooooo. All you need for this sweet beauty (per drink) is a ice filled highball glass, a shot of your favorite bourbon, real apple cider, a squeeze of lemon juice & ginger juice and some fizzy water.

Some fresh apple wedges add a bit of style & pizzaz too…

This drink is refreshing and would be really wonderful any time of the year. I can picture omitting the ice…heating up the cider & enjoying it like a hot toddy.

Oh you know me, always thinking ahead ;)

Enjoy!
