Aspen Times Weekly Libation: Reasons to drink in 2016
NEED TO KNOW ...
OK, we missed the first two (but think they’re funny so just had to share), but here are days worth marking on your calendar in the coming weeks and months:
Jan. 1: National Hangover Day
Jan. 3: National Drinking Straw Day
Jan. 17: National Hot Buttered Rum Day
Jan. 25: National Irish Coffee Day
Feb. 22: National Margarita Day
Feb. 27: National Kahlua Day
March 4: Mulled Wine Day
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.
