Hi ladies, I haven't really posted here, but occassionally lurk. H and I's birthdays are both at the beginning of May, so we're hosting what has turning into a double-themed (double) birthday party; Derby de Mayo.
Our invited suggested derby attire and I have a rough food outline. The party is starts at 3pm, 30-ish people and we anticipate it lasting through a good portion of the night so I want to make sure there's enough food and drink
Food: chips, queso, salsa, gauc, taco dip and taco bar (ground beef, black beans, olives, onion, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes,sour cream, hard and soft shells)
Dessert: Mint julep cupcakes, derby pie (and maybe cookies/fruit "tacos"); and also a pinata
Drink: Margaritas, mint julep, keg beer and craft beer (and we also have our bar stocked with vodka, rum, etc, and mixers).
How does that sound on food options? I'm thinking of adding in a derby-themed item, veggies and dip or tortilla rolls too. And for drinks, this is a group of drinkers; how much tequila would you recommend? (We have a margarita maker we'll be used for frozen drinks).
