    Our Derby soiree has morphed slightly into a casual large family dinner where we will probably be doing street tacos and watching the ponies. We will probably have Margaritas on the rocks or perhaps Paloma's for the guests. I might whip up an Old Fashioned for myself when I'm cooking.

    I'll probably get some El Jimador Reposado or Hornitos as a mixer. I have some Buffalo Trace, but if I find a good value at TW/Costco, I'll get something else (Four Roses Small Batch, Eagle Rare, Woodford).

    I'd like to believe there will be some bourbon, rye, and tequila flowing this weekend. So what's everyone having?

    I'll be having mint juleps made with Heaven Hill - no sense in using better Bourbon in a mint julep.

    Nice. My local Costco usually carries Buffalo Trace at $20.99, so it's really hard to justify not keeping it around at that price. They usually on get a case or two of certain bourbons so there are always different offerings each time I go.
