It's four more months to Derby Day, but it's never too soon to trot out the silver cups.
Not only are they super for mint-garnished May cocktails, but I use them for flowers, and for overall decor in our horsey-themed den. I have about a dozen and they've been well-used and worn over the years...mostly at steeplechases and point-to-points...for the occasional champers chug...a motley and mismatched collection. Some are baby cups (mine and the kids')...some are family cups from some shoot, etc. All have a bit of a scratched patina from picnic baskets and tailgates. Cheers!
