We know, we know … the New Year often means resolutions to stop drinking — or at least cut back. And while we fully support making healthy choices, this column is, after all, called "Libations" for a reason. So, no quitting here. And if cutting back is deemed necessary, we offer you a handful of specific reasons to celebrate in the first quarter of 2016 (there are plenty of similar ones to round out the year at http://www.nationaldaycalendar.com). Keep your eyes on these pages as the weeks unfold for reviews of these "national" holiday beverages and our favorite recipes.

NEED TO KNOW …

Jan. 1: National Hangover Day

Jan. 3: National Drinking Straw Day

Jan. 17: National Hot Buttered Rum Day

Jan. 25: National Irish Coffee Day
