Cheers to Today: 365 Cocktails Because Every Day Is a Holiday
By Chris Vola
Published by Penguin Random House/The Countryman Press
Your favorite holiday obviously requires a libation, but what about today? Now you can shake up your cocktail routine to celebrate every day of the year, from Absurdity Day (November 20) and Africa Day (May 25) to Women’s Day (August 9) and Zoo Lovers Day (April 8). These recipes for timeless classics, twists on familiar favorites, and creative concoctions commemorate historical events, international peoples, beloved foods, pop-culture icons, oddball occasions, and more. They honor every day with names, flavors, or histories that embrace the spirit of each celebration, including the mainstays. On New Year’s Day, sip a Gordon’s Breakfast as hair of the dog. Declare your independence on the Fourth of July with an Ex-Pat. Make a Manhattan to acknowledge where the first Labor Day parade took place. Impress loved ones on Thanksgiving with Apple Cider Mojitos. With charming illustrations and quick-witted humor, this stirring collection will delight and inspire year-round.
