It's time to get your fedora and blazer out because the Kentucky Derby is headed back to Churchill Downs this weekend for the 140th Run for the Roses!
Crowds will flock to Louisville to sip on Mint Juleps and watch "The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports" take place right before their eyes. For those of us who don't have the opportunity to party from the infield as the horses race by, Hornitos Tequila wants to offer a unique twist on a Derby Day classic to get the party started at home.
By combining the unique whiskey-like flavor of Hornitos Black Barrel Tequila and mint, you can saddle up with a cocktail that you'll want to place your bets on! Good Luck!
