Fire up the grill and throw on a filet of salmon or a thick cut ribeye from the newly opened Whole Foods Market in Bee Cave at Hill Country Galleria.  Add a few sides and a refreshing beverage and you'll have yourself a Memorial Day BBQ!  Accompany lunch with a day spent on Lake Travis basking in the sun, swimming, waterskiing and racing around the lake.  Sound like your type of weekend?  Meet the residents of Rough Hollow!  We're sure that's what they'll be doing this Memorial Day weekend!

After all that entertaining on Saturday & Sunday, you may want to take a day off from being head "grill master."  If so, Rough Hollow still has you covered.  The Grille is serving up a mouthwatering BBQ featuring beer can chicken, baby back ribs, tasty sides and even a costume competition for those dress up types.  Festivities start at 11am.

Hosting a red, white & blue party of your own?  What will you be serving?

Mint Julep vs. Margarita

The battle of the mixers begins Saturday with not one, but two reasons to shake it up. Will you be mixing Bourbon & mint or Tequila & lime?

Below is a vintage recipe for the iconic mint julep cocktail that we borrowed from our friends at Garden and Gun Magazine.

Southern Mint Julep
1 glass of Bourbon
4 sprigs of fresh mint
1/2 tbsp. powdered sugar

In a julep cup, crush the mint leaves and sugar lightly together, add bourbon and fill glass with cracked ice; stir gently until cup is frosted. Decorate on top with 3 sprigs of mint.

For our margarita lovers, here's an all natural recipe from for mixing the perfect margarita.

Puro Margarita
1.5oz Tequila 100% Agave
2tsp. Agave Nectar
1oz. fresh squeezed lime juice

Mix contents, swirl or stir to dissolve Agave nectar, add enough ice to fill your preferred margarita glass, shake and serve. Garnish with lime wheel or wedge, salt glass rim (optional).

Just so you know, we're routing for "I'll Have Another" in the Kentucky Derby Race on Saturday.  The name just fits right into our blog post!

Which refreshing beverage are you mixing up on Saturday?
