3 Excellent Reasons to Celebrate World Cocktail Day

World cocktail day
A cocktail to enjoy
World cocktail day apparently has its origins on May 13th 1806 when the word ‘cocktail’ was coined. I couldn’t find out if it is a day that has been celebrated since then or if ‘World Cocktail Day’ itself is a newer institution. The lack of clarity notwithstanding, it cannot be denied that cocktails practically have their own religion as popular as they are.

So here are my reasons to celebrate World Cocktail Day:

  1. cocktail dresses
  2. cocktail parties
  3. cocktail waiters

Here’s a link to a page about the day on 2022 which also happens to be Friday 13th (traditionally an unlucky day) – you might just need a few cocktails to drown your sorrows!

I have some further spot illustrations to add to this post so check back for an update in a couple of days.
