Visit Us on the Web – Click Here 052015The Kentucky Derby and Mint Juleps go together year after year.  Spring is arriving, and we are all anxious to find refreshments that go perfectly with the warmer weather.  As fellow wine drinkers, we are always looking for a way to enjoy wine with a little twist of uniqueness.  CA Sunshine once published a great idea in Food.com.  Take a look, and if it sounds good, give it a try.
