One of the traditions of a hunt is the stirup cup. It is the offering of port and perhaps a small snack at the begining of every hunt. In our hunt we have a yearly competition to see who can put on the best one and believe me the competition is fierce. This past weekend it was our families turn. We went with a fiesta theme to complement our western states hunt background. Notice the table cloth? We also did tequila in addition to the port and instead of shortbread cookies we baked cornbread cheese biscuits. It was a solid entry and hopefully a winning one! Here you can see my dad, one of the Master of the Hunt, helping himself to a little port.
