The Long WORKDAY
The Mojito! A Cuban highball consisting of white rum, sugar, lime juice, club soda and mint. Although born in Cuba, the exact origin of the Mojito is under debate with roots as early as 1586.
July 2nd is #NationalAnisetteDay! Anisette is an anise-flavored liqueur that is made by distilling aniseed and sometimes adding a sugar syrup. Anisette is popular in Spain, Italy, Portugal and France.
Pure Anisette should not be drunk straight as its alcoholic content is high enough to cause irritation to the throat. However, mixing it in with coffee, gin, bourbon or water will bring out a bit of a sweet flavor.
Thanks to National Day Calendar for the info!
