I'm trying something a little different for y'all now that bars are (kind of) coming back. Starting this week I'll round up what you should be sipping on for the week — one to enjoy on-location, one to-go and one you can make at home, Happy tippling, folks.
You can get the full steakhouse experience again, and we all know that includes cocktails. If you'll be watching the Kentucky Derby with your friends at Silver Fox Steakhouse, you can don your derby best for the chance to win prizes while watching the most exciting two minutes in sports. Just make sure to order one of the $10 Derby-themed cocktails. I got the most excited about the Kentucky Grazer, which brings together whiskey and Pimms for an intriguing julep-Pimm's cup matchup.
Kentucky Grazer ($10): Maker’s Mark whisky, Pimm', lemon juice, mint
TO GO This mean lookin' son of a bee sting is just what we need to spice up our lives right now. Not only comically adorable but comically delicious, this spicy-sweet pouch keeps your taste buds at attention until the last sip.
Bad Hombre ($12): Luna Azul tequila, habanero, honey, lemon, lime, chili salt
