HAPPY NATIONAL LIQUOR DAY!

OCTOBER 17th is
NATIONAL LIQUOR DAY!

Alcohol has been around since prehistoric times. Late Stone Age beer jugs discovered show that purposely fermented beverages were brewed at least as early as c. 10,000 BC!  Shortly after the very first bar joke was uttered:
The dinosaur gives the bartender a long, complicated list of instructions for making the drink it wants. The bartender says, "And what'll you have?" The caveman shrugs. "Just gimme something over the rocks."

The ancient Egyptians loved their beer, Rome and Greece were awash in wine and even had gods designated to the enjoyment of alcohol.  Bacchus (Rome) and Dionysus (Greece) were huge party animals!

The oldest known recipe ever discovered is for beer! Yes, indeedy, booze has accompanied humanity on our journey through the eons and today we celebrate that long term partnership and love affair with it's very own holiday!


Cheers!

SLIMY EYEBALL MARTINI - Halloween Cocktail #17


The SLIMY EYEBALL MARTINI
Halloween Cocktail #17 of 31 Monstrously Marvelous Martinis 
from The Martini Diva

The best thing about my Slimy Eyeball Martini (aside from the fact that it's a yummy coconut and orange martini) is that this is not a transparent cocktail. The Sunny Delight and the half & half make it somewhat opaque so your guests won't see this eyeball garnish until they've had a couple of sips of their cocktail.  Then, all of a sudden, there it is...an eyeball staring back up at them, one they get to eat!

Isn't scaring the beejeebus out of your guests the whole point of having a Halloween party?
