Hold your horses! Race season has begun with the ultimate kick-off featuring big hats and bourbon – The Kentucky Derby! But don’t let a galloping good-time end at the beginning! Derby is only the first leg of the Triple Crown. So, throw a few get-togethers (and partake in a bit of gambling) with your friends for all three of the major race events (Preakness on May 18 and Belmont Stakes on June 9). And obviously, when it comes to the drinks, the stakes are high, so why not wow all your friends with fabulous game day cocktails.
Maybe you’ve been invited to a holiday dinner at a friend’s home or – if you’re lucky – a weekend at their country getaway. Whatever your destination, make a good impression and don’t show up empty handed. That’s right, it’s time to pick out, wrap up and hand over that absolute most perfect morsel of gratitude– the hostess gift.
