The Drinks You Need to Make on May 5th


With May 5th coming up right around the corner, all things Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo are on the brain!

When both of these events fall on the same day, it's cause for celebration (not that we needed an excuse to celebrate!). 

So, below we're giving you a few of our favorite drink recipes, absolutely perfect for any of your Cinco de Mayo or Derby parties!

The Tipsy Flamingo



1 oz. Palm Sugar Syrup

1.5 oz. Tequila

Splash of club soda or sparkling water

Grapefruit juice


Jalapeño slices


In a cocktail glass, squeeze lime, add Palm Sugar, jalapeño slices, tequila, and muddle together. Pssst: our Acacia Wood Muddler is on sale for only $7.99!

Pour in grapefruit juice and stir. 

Top with ice and club soda. 

Option: For less of a kick, use only one jalapeño slice. Want to lighten up the drink a bit? Cut back on the grapefruit juice and increase club soda. 

Mint Julep



2 tbsp. Royal Rose Lavender Lemon Syrup

1 oz. Bourbon

4-6 mint leaves

1 sprig of mint

Crushed ice

2-4 tbsp. cold water or sparkling water


In a sturdy glass, muddle mint leaves and syrup for 15-20 seconds. 

Fill the glass with crushed ice. 

Pour bourbon on top of ice. 

Add a splash of water or sparkling water.

Gently stir.

Garnish with a sprig of mint and you're off to the races!

Whether you're hosting a party or going to a party, these drinks are sure to be a hit!
