Hey Friends!

Welcome! I am so glad that you are here. I have so many great ideas to share with you today in the link party. But first, I will show you what I have been up to on my blog this week.

How to Make Delicious Kentucky Derby Hot Brown Sandwiches

Peacock Ridge Farm Blog, Classic Mint Julep
See the best Classic Mint Julep Recipe, here.

 The Mint Julep is a bourbon cocktail best known for being the signature drink of the Kentucky Derby. However, it shouldn’t be reserved for only one day a year. It’s a refreshing combination of mint, simple syrup, bourbon and crushed ice, perfect for sipping on hot days. The Mint Julep is traditionally served in a rocks glass or, ideally, in a silver julep cup. What is the difference between a mojito and a mint julep? The Mint Julep is kind of like the Mojito of the South. The major difference between it and the Mojito is that it uses bourbon instead of rum. Sure, the Mint Julep is typically consumed on Derby Day, but don’t let that keep you from enjoying one whenever the mood strikes.

How to Make an Easy DIY Spring Wedding Arbor

See How to Make an Easy DIY Spring Wedding Arbor, here.

Recently, we hosted a wedding for the loveliest family. Their son, who is in the Coast Guard and their precious daughter in law decided to get married here on the farm. This was the first wedding in our new barn. What fun! To see our new barn, click here. They wanted a rustic elegant look for there wedding. We had birch logs from a winter storm, so we used one of the logs as the base of the arbor. One thing that I love about the arbor is that it is easy to remove and use again for the next wedding.

And now, it’s time to Party!
