Drink Up on National Beverage DayMay 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.
Bourbon Old Fashioned
4 dashes Angostura Bitters
1 tsp Sugar (or 2 sugar cubes)
1 Orange wheel
1 Maraschino cherry
1 splash Club soda
2 oz Bourbon
Garnish: Fresh orange wheel and cherry
Glass: Old Fashioned
6 Mint leaves
.75 oz Simple syrup (one part water, one part sugar)
.75 oz Fresh lime juice
1.5 oz White rum
1.5 oz Club soda
Garnish: Mint sprig
