Kentucky Margarita

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Well, its no surprise that we eventually ran out of tequila after making upall those delicious Margaritas. Well it turned out that we still had plenty of Jim Beam Bourbon left from Saturdays Derby Day Mint Juleps. A quick click to the Jim Beam website and we found several drink recipes. We decided that the Kentucky Margarita was a natural choice to finish of the day. Cheers!


  • 3 oz Jim Beam Bourbon
  • splash triple sec
  • splash sour mix
  • lime wedge

Moisten the rim of a martini glass with the wedge of lime and then turn the glass upside down in a small plate with a sprinkling of coarse salt. Combine 3 oz of Jim beam Bourbon and a splash of Triple Sec in a cocktail shake with several ice cubes. Shake and then strain into the martini glass and serve with a wedge of lime.
