To me Kentucky is known for two things: horses and bourbon. I have talked some about the horse scene here, but bourbon is a true beauty too…at least at Buffalo Trace Distillery it is.
The time is drawing near when racetracks around the country will raise a Mint Julep in solidarity with those at Churchill Downs for the annual Run for the Roses at the Kentucky Derby.
Some people can drink and some people, well, can’t. My husband (beloved Spaceman) hopelessly falls into the latter category. He swears he is better at handling a drink (as in one drink because more than one is risky…for everyone!) when he has had food. Um, really? I’d like to present exhibit A: my birthday celebration at the Mai Tai Bar at The Royal Hawaiian in Waikiki, Hawaii, and let you decide: Mai Tai drinker, or not?
