Drink Holidays in July 2021
National Anisette Day
July 2 is National Anisette Day. You may be asking yourself… what exactly is anisette? Sometimes called absinthe’s sweeter cousin, anisette is a liqueur distilled from the seed of the anise plant, resulting in a licorice-flavored liquor.
National Piña Colada Day
National Piña Colada Day occurs annually on July 10, to celebrate one of the most popular tropical rum cocktails of all time. The very flavors of the piña colada—rum, pineapple and coconut cream—conjure images of warm days, cool ocean breezes, and swaying palm trees, making July the perfect time to celebrate this tropical treat!
National Mojito Day
Each year, National Mojito Day is celebrated on July 11—which is fitting, since there’s no better way to beat the summer heat than a cold, minty, refreshing mojito!
National Bourbon Day
National Bourbon Day, which is celebrated each year on July 14, may be as American a holiday as Independence Day. Bourbon is as American as apple pie and baseball. It has been around since America’s colonial days, and bourbon’s popularity has soared in recent years.
National Grand Marnier Day
Here’s a grand idea… celebrate Grand Marnier Day on July 14! Grand Marnier has a reputation as an extremely versatile liquor. While it can certainly be enjoyed alone, it’s also a staple in tons of cocktails, desserts, sauces, marinades… even the roasted duck dish Conard an l’Orange!
National Daiquiri Day
A well-made daiquiri is about as refreshing as they come when it comes to iconic classic cocktails. And though daiquiris are enjoyable throughout the year, July 19 has been set aside as National Daiquiri Day to celebrate this glorious drink.
National Tequila Day
National Tequila Day is celebrated annually on July 24. Tequila is a wonderfully diverse spirit—and one that has been delighting North Americans for more than four centuries.
National Scotch Day
National Scotch Day is celebrated each year on July 27, in recognition of the day in 1494 that Scotch whisky was first mentioned in the Exchequer Rolls of Scotland—in other words, the first time Scotland’s whiskies were taxed.
