In Observance of National Margarita Day
Every February 22, we come together for National Margarita Day to pay homage to our favorite celebratory cocktail. The margarita is one of the most beloved cocktails in the world, however it’s hard to say definitively who created the margarita. Tales of its origin are as numerous as the variations of the drink itself.
A Pairing for All Occasions
There is a fairly strong divide between beverage professionals and those who work in the service industry. Is it okay to drink on the job? Some people and companies are staunchly against it, while some bartenders will down a shot every now and then when they’re “in the weeds”. That being said, everyone usually comes together to tip back a few drinks together after closing. If you’ve had a good night, maybe just a glass of wine after your shift. If it’s been a bad night, you might choose something stronger. For me? I would always go to the bar next door, sit at the bar, and order a glass of blanc de blancs champagne (we should note this establishment added this to their glass pours solely because I came in at least five evenings a week to imbibe and wind down).
