Drink Up on National Beverage Day

May 6, 2014 By: Kristen Santoro

Are you feeling a bit parched right now?  Then today is the perfect opportunity to raise your glass and indulge in a nice long sip of your favorite beverage.

Today, May 6, otherwise known as National Beverage Day, makes for a celebration of all things drinkable, sippable and potable.  But remember to drink sensibly and not at your own bar. 

Can’t decide on what to drink? Here are a couple of my favorite classics.
