National Beverage Day

“Basically, I'm for anything that gets you through the night - be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniels.” - Frank Sinatra

It's National Beverage Day!

Water. Coconut water. Milk. Tea. Bubble tea. Sweet tea. Hot chocolate. Kombucha. Coffee. Soda. Juice. Smoothies. Frappes. Horchata. Whey protein. Energy drinks. Beer. Wine. Hard liquor. You name it! Today is all about celebrating liquid refreshments.

Without even having to try, I would say most people in the country will end up celebrating today whether they realize it or not. But with what? That's totally up to you. There are already loads of holidays throughout the year that cover many of the drinks we enjoy including World Milk Day, World Water Day, National Bock Beer Day, and National Fresh Squeezed Juice Day just to name a handful. So why not try something that ISN'T already on the calendar of eats? Why not make a screwdriver? Take a shot of sake? Down some seltzer? Sip some grapefruit juice?

Since there's no National Dark and Storm Day that's how I'm going to celebrate today. Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum, Crabbie's Ginger Beer, and some lime juice?

Now THIS is a holiday!

Happy National Beverage Day!
