Like some rare astrological phenomenon, both the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo fall on Saturday. In honor of the occasion, you could whip up some classic Mint Juleps and Margaritas.
But we're taking the alignment of holidays as a sign to make something out of the ordinary. So we combed our recipe library for tequila and bourbon concoctions that are not only delicious but also perfect for celebrating the very rare Cinco de Derby. Cheers!

Toast the Run for the Roses with this appropriately equine-themed tipple. The old-school creation is very similar to a Manhattan with just a bit of added maraschino liqueur.
Bourbon is the quintessential American whiskey and the drink of choice of many Southerners. If the recipe for mint juleps looks familiar, you would not be far wrong noticing its similarity to the Mojito.
