November 11 we celebrate all United States military veterans. We at Nightclub & Bar would like to thank all of you, past and present, for your service. Veterans Day was, at one point in time, referred to as Armistice Day. President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the 11th of November Armistice Day way back in 1919. A Congressional Act passed in May of 1938 made November 11 of every year a legally observed holiday. In 1954, Armistice Day officially became Veterans Day through an amendment. That’s a lot of red tape for just 1 holiday, which fully illustrates just how important today has become. Here are a few special food and drink recipes for you to either put on your menu or try at home. Cheers!

Let’s start with a truly patriotic cocktail, Born in the LES. It’s red, white and blue and pays homage to New York City. You can find the recipe here.

Not many spirits are as quintessentially American as moonshine. Check out the Lincoln County Citrus here.

The End Zone is made with light beer and Basil Hayden’s bourbon, and it’s also a nod to American football.

The Light Apple combines 2 American ingredients – Sam Adam’s and Angry Orchard – and couldn’t be easier to make.

What’s more satisfying  than a steak on an American holiday? Porterhouse Steak with Herbed Butter is just what the sergeant ordered.

This recipe for Mini Burgers & Crispy Onion Rings features patties made with ground chuck and minced boneless short ribs, plus onion ring batter made with club soda.

Just as American as football and the proud US military are state fairs. This recipe for The State Fair creates an elevated grilled cheese sandwich.
