The next few weeks include a bevy of beverage-related events from the Kentucky Derby to Cinco de Mayo to the official World Cocktail Week -- and as luck would have it, I'm going on vacation! To help you out and hopefully tide you over until I return (with a ton of most likely annoying posts about awesome nightlife and cocktails I found in the Bahamas), I've posted some pertinent resources below for your informational pleasure.
First up, the Kentucky Derby. Also known as the only event I would ever consider buying an enormous hat for -- which of course, has always made me really want to go just to do that. ;) Celebrate in style with a great Mint Julep recipe from CocktailTimes.com.
Second, celebrate Mexican heritage and independence next Wednesday with some creative Cinco de Mayo cocktails,

Third, World Cocktail Week kicks off May 6 through May 13 and believe me, this is kind of a big deal. Get the facts straight from the source at the Museum of the American Cocktail Web site.
And finally, the ever-on-top-of-things Colleen Graham will be updating us all on each event as it nears, so find out more by visiting her blog at cocktails.about.com.
