Guess where I’m going this Saturday? A few hints . . . thoroughbred horses, the Churchill Downs, a two minute run, Louisville . . . .
Yes, you’ve got it! The Kentucky Derby . . . party. No, I won’t be at the actual race, but I am attending my first derby party, complete with extravagant hat and (I hope) mint juleps.
Speaking of mint juleps, here’s a suggestion for Derby attendees and partygoers who want to replace (or space out) their drinks. Mint herbal tea (like Chai, Baby!’s Energy Blend) over ice is a wonderful – and stylish! – beverage for the Derby or your derby party. Simply prepare your tea as usual -- remember not to over-steep – and pour over ice into a tall, cool glass. Ooooh, I can taste it now.
Enjoy the race, everyone! And though it’s my dream to get myself and my fabulous hat to the Derby one day, I’m happy to report that Chai, Baby! has gotten there already. Chai, Baby!’s Energy Blend was selected for inclusion in the Kentucky Derby’s VIP gift bags!
