National Cocktail Day: Cheers!
Cocktails are drinks typically comprised of wine or a distilled beverage (such as whiskey, brandy, vodka, rum, or tequila) and mixed with other tasty ingredients such as cream, soda, liqueurs, fruit, juices, honey, beer, etc. Whether you enjoy one before, during or after dinner, with a few of your favorite friends or during a romantic evening with that special someone, today's cocktails are available in all sorts of refreshing and tasty flavors.
This annual holiday, created by cocktail enthusiast Jace Shoemaker-Galloway, not only celebrates the ginormous variety of cocktails, but also encourages folks to create their own original concoction and share it with others.
From the classic to the creative, National Cocktail Day is the perfect day to kick back and unwind with a favorite cocktail or two. Whether you prefer yours shaken or stirred, on the rocks or frozen, why not celebrate with one or two of the following cocktail recipes? And as always, please drink responsibly.
