National Cocktail Day Is Here & These Drinks Should Be On The Menu

by Black America Web

Today is National Cocktail Day (March 24) and across this great land, someone is surely going to have a wonderfully crafted cocktail in hand or so we hope. Down below, we’ve got an assortment of cocktail ideas that will help you celebrate in style.

National Cocktail Day was founded by expert “holidaymaker” Jace Shoemaker-Galloway. According to lore, Shoemaker-Galloway just decided that this would be the day to celebrate a cocktail because, as she puts it on her website, “every day is a holiday.”

For those who have been hanging out here with us at Spirit.Ed, they should already know that we’re fond of our cocktails. As we believe wholeheartedly, mixing drinks should be viewed as a culinary exercise and art form. To transform spirits, liqueurs, mixers, and bitters into an entirely different thing is a beautiful skill to have. Plus, you’ll be the hit at all of your parties if you take up some of these excellent recipes we’ll share below.

Now, on to the National Cocktail Day drinks roundup!

Before we get into it, I thought it would be a good idea to share a pair of cocktails I mixed and enjoyed for the holiday. Because of the warmer temps, I decided to go for the fresh and bold flavors of dry gin to serve as my base. I ended up making classic cocktails, the Bijou, and the Alaska. Both are simple cocktails with easy ratios to remember. However, the reason I picked them is the fact that green Chartreuse, which is a key ingredient, will be harder to obtain globally as the monks who make the product are focusing more on their personal mission and faith. With the possibility of never being able to make these drinks except on rare occasions, I wanted to go out with a bang. Enjoy. — D.L.
