New York Cocktails To Celebrate Cinco de Mayo, Supermoon & The Kentucky Derby

Posted: Updated:

This. Saturday. Is. Going. To. Be. Epic. Why, you ask? Oh, let us count the reasons (it's a trifecta).

1. Cinco de Mayo. A terrific excuse to drown your sorrows in delicious tart and salty margaritas.
2. The Kentucky Derby. The only day it’s socially acceptable to sling back bourbon and bet on ponies while donning a ginormous head topper.
3. The SUPERMOON. That’s a full moon that’s 12% bigger and brighter than a typical full moon due to its close proximity to the Earth.

Given these three things, rest assured the crazies will be out in full force (do you have any idea how handsy moon worshippers get after five Mint Juleps?). Which means you can either join them at the bar or hide from them at home. Either way, do yourself a favor and enjoy one of these cocktail mashups created especially for this very rare alignment by some of New York’s best mixologists.
