10 Best St. Patrick’s Day Bar Crawls

St. Patrick’s Day is a great day to celebrate Irish heritage by indulging in their most famous national pastime – drinking some beer and whiskey! Americans have wholeheartedly adopted this holiday, and cities across the country have excellent parades and parties to celebrate. These ten cities go all out and are essential inclusions on your party bucket list. If you are planning to visit one of the best St Patrick’s day bar crawls, don’t forget to check out what makes the best hangover pill before you travel.

  1. Chicago, Illinois 

The St. Patrick’s Day celebration in Chicago is recognizable throughout the world. (pictured above) Their parade was founded in 1843, but they are better known for dying their river green. With great neighborhoods full of character, there are plenty of choices to create your perfect bar crawl that ends with a stumble alongside the iconic green river.

Sports fans will enjoy the rowdy area known as Wrigleyville, with more than 40 sports bars surrounding historic Wrigley Field. For those who prefer more refined beverages, the Magnificent Mile is the place to be. This area of northern Michigan Avenue is packed with gourmet restaurants and swanky hotel bars to celebrate an upscale St. Patrick’s Day.

  1. Savannah, Georgia

Maybe the most popular St. Patrick’s destination in the country, Savannah hosts thousands of people every year on its historic downtown streets. With the average high temperature in the mid-70s in March, could you think of a more perfect place to party? Gather your friends and head right over to River Street.

It is the perfect setting for a night on the town. Though the cobblestones may give you some trouble, traffic will not. It is a pedestrian-only street, so you can stumble from one bar to the next along the Savannah River, with Irish flags waving you on all the way.

  1. Boston, Massachusetts

With the highest percentage of Irish blood in the country, Boston goes all out for St. Patrick’s Day. Their parade is one of the oldest and biggest in the country – it was founded in 1737 and draws over a million spectators each year.

They make a whole week out of it with a film festival and live music in addition to the myriad of drinking opportunities. Whether you join an official bar or pub crawl or create your own unique itinerary, the infectious St. Patrick’s Day spirit that infuses the entire city will ensure your holiday is one to remember!

  1. Key West, Florida

It may be known as the capital of the piña colada, but the folks at the southernmost point of the United States know how to party like the Irish. You can stroll from one bar to the next along the beach or hop on a colorful bicycle to hit up the hot place you heard about across town. They are also known for their popular, well-organized bar crawl. Make sure you buy tickets in advance – the passes that guarantee you a drink at each stop go fast!

  1. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

You may not know it, but Steel City boasts a loud and proud Irish culture as well! The hardworking residents set aside their Steelers yellow and gold for leprechaun green and get down to some serious celebrating. Though you will need to layer up for the walk between bars, you’ll love the convenience of their downtown area.

They even do a wonderful outdoor fair with food and drink vendors and live music to keep everyone warm and toasty after their impressive parade kicks off the celebration.

  1. New Orleans, Louisiana

It probably comes as no surprise that New Orleans embraces this excuse to party, but you may not know that there is a thriving Irish community in the Big Easy. Of course, New Orleans loves a parade, and the Irish Channel Parade doesn’t disappoint.

Participants throw cabbage, potatoes, and carrots into the crowd as readily as they threw beads and Moon Pies for Mardi Gras. Outside of the legendary bars on Bourbon Street, New Orleans is famous for their raucous block parties, each with their own parade.

  1. Buffalo, New York

If you’re not afraid of a little cold, head up to Buffalo for an unforgettable St. Patrick’s Day. The holiday usually coincides with their first hint of spring, so the city goes all out with two full days of parades and parties. There are plenty of Irish societies and authentic Irish pubs stuffed full of traditional live music to keep even the most discerning celebrant a happy leprechaun.

  1. Louis, Missouri

St. Patrick’s Day in St. Louis starts out highbrow, with the Ancient Order of Hibernian’s annual parade. It then moves over to Dog Town, the city’s Irish neighborhood, where it builds steam and turns into an epic party.

If you really want to earn your green beers, participate in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Run – a five-mile race that draws more than 8,000 participants each year. The run is sponsored by Michelob Ultra beer, so you know the runner’s village after the race is going to be the most awesome place to start your party.

  1. Cleveland, Ohio

The earnest Midwesterners of Cleveland are purists – their St. Patrick’s Day celebrations take place on March 17, no matter which day of the week it happens to be. It is the largest and oldest celebration in Ohio and has gained momentum, drawing larger crowds every year. Even though Cleveland is only a medium-size town, they know how to celebrate in a big way.

  1. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The birthplace of our democracy is a stronghold of Irish descendants. Philadelphia has celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with a parade since 1771 and a bar crawl since the mid-1980s. The Erin Express is one of the oldest and most established bar crawls in the country with free transportation to more than 20 bars. The residents love the holiday so much that they celebrate “St. Practice Day” the weekend before to ensure they are totally prepped for the big day.

So, pack your bags with your green finest and plan a St. Patrick’s Day getaway to one of these great destinations. Whether you participate in a bar crawl or just go for the people watching, it will undoubtedly be one of the best celebrations of the year.

hangover pillHave you tried a hangover pill before? What makes one better than other? Here is a 5-point buyer’s guide for what you should be looking for in a hangover pill. Also at the end, we have some special offers to help with your hangovers.

A Hangover Pill Needs a Proper Blend of Ingredients

To be Clear, A Hangover is Typically More Than Just Dehydration. When you drink, your body requires extra vitamins, minerals, and other good stuff to balance out the negatives from the alcohol.

  • Multivitamin, mineral & herbal blend specifically formulated for people who drink.
  • A heavy dose of B & C Vitamins to help balance common vitamin deficiencies linked to regular alcohol consumption.
  • The proprietary blend contains Milk Thistle & Artichoke extract which have been shown to promote liver health.
  • Amino Acids & Antioxidants to aid the body with alcohol induced toxins & free radicals
Short Term Benefits

Immediate effect that you are looking for is helping with your hangover. So you need a hangover pill containing antioxidants, B & C vitamins, and N-acetyl Cysteine to help you wake up feeling better.

Long Term Benefits

Many people who drink regularly are deficient in B Vitamins. A hangover pill loaded with a full B Vitamin complex will help those who drink fight deficiencies. Also, drinking can be hard on the liver. Find a pill containing liver supporting ingredients. Milk thistle is commonly used and has been used as a liver tonic for generations.

You Need Convenience

When talking about convenience, the question is where will you drinking? Often heavier drinking occurs when you are out of the house at parties, weddings, concerts, vacations etc. You need a pill that is easy to carry, you want it in individual packets so you can put it in your pocket, bag or carry-on item. This is why pills are better than liquids. Liquids are more difficult to carry in most situations.

Price

Two ways put price in perspective. First, let’s looks at the IV hangover treatments. Most start at $125! While you don’t want to be hungover on vacation, that’s a pretty big price tag. This leads to the question if you are really, really hungover, how much would you pay to feel at least decent? $25? $50? Some people pay well over $100 to feel better.Most pills should cost less than a drink. Wouldn’t you want to try hangover pill samples for less than your next drink?

Has to Be Effective & Reliable

Saving the biggest for last. Most importantly, a hangover pill has to work. You want something that you can reach for and rely on every occasion. It should be backed by a 100% Money Back Guarantee. Also, the testimonials and reviews should do the talking about the quality and effectiveness.

Next Stepshangover cure

Happy Hour Vitamins offers everything a hangover pill should have. It is a multivitamin specially formulated to help with hangovers. Proper ingredients, effective, convenient, and priced very well. Plus it is backed by a 100% money back guarantee and has a 4.6 rating on Amazon.

Skunked Beer Happens…

You crack open a fresh beer, take a sip and realize the skunk got your beer. Now what? Do you drink it? Can you drink it? How do you prevent this in the future? Actually what the hell is skunked beer?

What is Skunked Beer?

Skunked Beer is beer that tastes and smells like skunk spray. While some beer drinkers think that variations from warm to cold temperatures cause this, it is actually said by experts that light hitting ingredients found in the beer, is what causes the bad taste and smell.

How to Determine if the Beer Has Been Skunked?

The best way to determine if your beer has been skunked, is that it will smell and taste like skunk spray. Also, if you know that the beer has been in sunlight, artificial light or gotten hot, then the beer has probably already been skunked. Want to the Best Tips for Pairing Burgers & Beers?

Why Beer Gets Skunked?

The Isohumulones, or the bitter compounds used in hops, which is an ingredient in beers, are very sensitive to natural light. Artificial light affects the isohumulones compounds in the beer as well, but not nearly as quickly as natural light. If natural or artificial light reaches the isohumulones, then they get broken down into 3-methyl-2-butene-1-thiol or MBT, which not only smells like a skunk but tastes very similiar to skunk spray. (Happy Hour Vitamins thoughts… How dedicated was the researcher that figured that out?)

How to Prevent It?

To prevent your beer from being skunked, keep it in a darkened, cool area, like the refrigerator. Allowing the beer to become exposed, in particular to natural light, will quickly break down its compounds. This leads to the beer possibly being skunked. Also, if you buy canned beer, then this offers a great protection against the damaging light rays. And if not a canned beer, then purchase beers in a brown bottle, which rates as secondary in protection, against the dreaded skunked beer. Do not drink beer from a clear glass or green glass, as this allows your beer to get skunked within a matter of seconds. Heat brings on the skunked beer taste quickly, so keep your beer away from anything that heats it up. Learn how acetaldehyde in your beer adds to your hangover.

Can You Still Drink Skunked Beer?

Although skunked beer is considered to have a bad smell and taste, the ingredient 3-methyl-2-butene-1-thiol, that causes the beer to be skunked, has no ill effects on the health of the human body. So, the answer is yes, you can still drink skunked beer, without getting sick. Avoid Your Beer Hangover with B Vitamins.

What Beers are More Likely to be Skunked

There are some brands of beer that in particular, are more likely than others to be skunked. Pilsners, which often manufactures their beers in green bottles, are highly susceptible to skunking. In order to be safe, buy cans and brown bottled beers. Stay away from clear bottles or green bottle beers, which are more susceptible to skunking.

What You Should Do Next

Now that you know what skunked beer is and ways to prevent it, then hopefully you can stay away from the dreaded hungover bartenderskunked beers. But if you have too many beers, you can wake up hungover. You don’t want to wake up hungover do you? Check out Happy Hour Vitamins, a multivitamin specially formulated for hangovers. They may not prevent skunked beer but they offer samples at www.tryh2v.com. BTW, Happy Hour Vitamins have a 4.6-star rating on Amazon and are backed by a 100% Money Back Guarantee. The only thing you have to lose is your hangover…

Antioxidants Hangover Cure?

Are Antioxidants Hangover Cure? First, let’s look at the 2 items: antioxidants hangovers. Excess drinking leads to increased toxins in the body. In short, alcohol provokes an inflammatory response in your body. From that response, you may experience hangover symptoms such as:

  • Dehydration
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Memory problems
  • Decreased appetite
  • Trouble concentrating

I’m sure you are all too familiar with these.

The other part.

Oxidation is a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals, leading to chain reactions that may damage cells. Antioxidants are substances that may protect your cells against the damaging effects of free radicals (toxins). Antioxidants are found in many foods, including fruits and vegetables. They are also available as dietary supplements. Examples of antioxidants include:

  • Beta-carotene
  • Selenium
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
The Staggering Cost of Hangovers

Here is an excerpt from Annals of Internal Medicine examining the staggering cost of hangovers (Wiese et al. 2000):

“The alcohol hangover is characterized by headache, tremulousness, nausea, diarrhea, and fatigue combined with decreased occupational, cognitive, or visual-spatial skill performance. In the United States, related absenteeism and poor job performance cost $148 billion annually (average annual cost per working adult, $2000). (2013 updated to $224 billion).

Although hangover is associated with alcoholism, most of its cost is incurred by the light-to-moderate drinker. Patients with hangover may pose substantial risk to themselves and others despite having a normal blood alcohol level. Hangover may also be an independent risk factor for cardiac death.

Based on these statistics, hangover causes a significant economic loss in the United States. The staggering cost of alcoholic hangover could be significantly mitigated if drinkers took the right antioxidants before going to bed.”

Bottom Line:

You need to get antioxidants in your body to help prevent your hangover. The trick is that you need to take the antioxidants before you crash, and remembering to do that is difficult when you are so drunk you need them. While antioxidants hangover cure, they work better before so your body can put them to work.

But hangovers have a few components.

First, Hangovers are more than just dehydration. Yes, dehydration can help ruin that next day. But let’s look at what else you can do for the full hangover spectrum.

B Vitamins

Your body uses an excess amount of B vitamins when you drink. Some are destroyed by the alcohol. Many are used by the body in the metabolization process of alcohol. Making sure you have plenty of B vitamins can help your body deal with the negatives of alcohol better. Plus, many drinkers are deficient in B vitamins, adding to the day after sluggishness.

Liver Support

Alcohol makes the work over time, bottom line. That being said, it is probably a wise decision to support your liver with Milk Thistle and other supplements that can help your liver.

Acetaldehyde Toxicity

This is big. When your body is breaking down alcohol, the first step is turning it into acetaldehyde. Unfortunately, acetaldehyde it 30x more toxic to the body than alcohol. As you drink more, the build up of acetaldehyde, a toxin,  has been linked to many hangover symptoms. But you are in luck, cysteine which is found in eggs, can help the body process and lower toxic acetaldehyde levels more rapidly. Also adding in some C & B Vitamins will help the body metabolize the evil acetaldehyde.

This is where it all comes together

Antioxidants can help with hangovers. But, so can B vitamins, milk thistle, vitamin C and cysteine. The best part, all these hangover-fighting ingredients has been already combined to help with your hangovers. Welcome to Happy Hour Vitamins, a multivitamin specially formulated to help with hangovers.

Really, does this work?

Happy Hour Vitamins is backed by a 100% money back guarantee and has outstanding reviews on Amazon. It is easy, take a packet (2 capsules) before/while drinking to prep your body to help you feel better the next day.

  • Antioxidant Rich Superfruits & Vitamin C to help with toxins

  • Milk thistle and other ingredients linked to liver support
  • N-Acetyl Cysteine to help the body fight toxic buildup of acetaldehyde

The Champagne Hangover. The legend of champagne delivering a stiff hangover has been spread for years. But is it true? If so, why does delicious delicate champagne lead to worse hangovers? After digging in we found some very interesting information.

First, to clarify the difference between Sparkling Wine, Champagne, & Prosecco. Sparkling wine is a wine with significant levels of carbon dioxide in it, making it fizzy. Specific types of sparkling wine are champagne & prosecco. Champagne is exclusively produced in the Champagne region of France. Prosecco, originates from the village of Prosecco, located near the city of Trieste in northeastern Italy. For the most part the rest of bubbly wine is sparkling wine.

Carbonated beverages (champagne, sodas, beer) push alcohol to be absorbed into the blood stream faster than it does in non-carbonated beverages. At the top of the list in most carbonated beverages? Champagne and sparkling wines. The quicker rate of absorption can lead to a worse champagne hangover.

Only 20% of the carbon dioxide in Champagne escapes from a bottle in the form of bubbles – the remaining 80% is released through direct diffusion. Pro Tip, pour your bottled beer into a glass to release some carbonation. Better for digestion and your hangover.

Preventing the Champagne Hangover

On top of that alcohol is a diuretic. The extra urination can cause dehydration, which can add to your hangover. Adding to that carbonated beverages make you feel a little fuller. This tends to make you less thirsty. Which can cause one to drink less water because your stomach is full and this leads to more dehydration in your body.

Another potential culprit for the champagne hangover is the residual sugar. Sugar really throws your body off when you are drinking and greatly adds to your hangover. For lower sugar content, look for sparkling wine bottles labeled “brut” or “extra brut,” as in, less than 1% residual sugar. Most people will find these less tasty, but if you are looking to drink bubbly all night this is a good recommendation.

After looking at the facts, it appears the champagne hangover is real. 2 solutions, consumchampagne hangovere a little less bubbly. Another option is to take a hangover supplement that helps prepare your body and prevents your hangover. Maybe this sounds too good to be true but we have good news for you, we have samples you can try. Happy Hour Vitamins was created out of a desire to avoid hangovers. The owner knew others would enjoy the benefits as well and wants you to try them. 5 samples of Happy Hour Vitamins are available for just $5 S&H ($5 is than a drink) just visit www.tryh2v.com.

Enjoy your Champagne, just beware of the champagne hangover. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Acetaldehyde Beer…
What’s the Big Deal?

Acetaldehyde is a naturally occurring organic compound that is found in everything: bread, ripe fruit, coffee and is produced by plants.  It is also produced by the partial oxidation of ethanol by the liver enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase and may be a contributing factor to hangovers from alcohol consumption. Help yourself out with Acetaldehyde Beer, Acetaldehyde Toxicity, and Your Hangover.

Brewers yeast produces acetaldehyde as an intermediate compound in the conversion of glucose to ethanol, so it’s found in every beer you make, at least during primary fermentation. However, in a healthy fermentation, the yeast fully converts the vast majority of this compound to alcohol so that any residual amount falls below the flavor threshold. If the fermentation is less than optimal, the conversion of acetaldehyde to alcohol may remain incomplete, and too much will remain in the final beer. It is frequently described as having a tart flavor reminiscent of green apples, and the flavor of dry cider also comes to mind.

Acetaldehyde Toxicity

In the first step when alcohol reaches your liver, your body metabolizes ethanol into acetaldehyde. Acetaldehyde is far more toxic than alcohol, as much at 30x times more toxic! As you drink the build up of acetaldehyde in your body is often linked to hangover symptoms. Eventually, your body will turn acetaldehyde into a less toxic acetic acid.

acetaldehyde beer

So your body attempts to break it down toxic acetaldehyde with enzymes and glutathione. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that is crucial for liver detoxification. You can help your body add more glutathione with N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC). NAC is known to help increase glutathione which detoxifies the acetaldehyde that is the culprit for many hangover symptoms. NAC is thought to be even more effective when combined with thiamine, or vitamin B1. Thiamine is also commonly administered to chronic drinkers to treat deficiency and alcohol withdrawal. Read “Why Milk thistle is a must have liver support for Drinkers.”

In Short

Combining NAC (Cysteine), B1 (thiamin) & C Vitamins help your body process acetaldehyde, cysteine can be found in eggs. B1 can be found in some fish, pork & nuts. This combination could help your body avoid acetaldehyde toxicity and avoid your hangover. Read “Why B Vitamins are Import for Drinkers.”

Solution

Happy Hour Vitamins is a multivitamin specially formulated for people who drink and helps with hangovers. One major ingredient is NAC to help your body with toxic acetaldehyde. Taking one convenient 2 capsule dose will give you all the nutrients you need to avoid your hangovers.

What You Drink Affects Your Hangover

What You Drink Affects Your Hangover

What you consume when you are drinking can affect your hangover. Some would say this is a myth, but science has shown that some drinks make you more susceptible to a hangover. Let’s look into what factors cause this and healthy alcoholic drinks you can choose.

Sugars
Beverages containing both alcohol and sugar are the leading cause of a bad hangover. Sugary beverages like sodas, sweet & sour mix, energy drinks, and sweetened liquors are the kind of drinks that amplify hangovers. The organ in the body responsible for metabolizing sugars is the liver, which is also the same organ that processes alcohol. This major workload can cause much stress on the liver, not to mention alcohol alone can negatively impact blood sugar levels.

Stimulants & Diuretics
Also, most find themselves mixing a stimulant (caffeine/sugar) and a depressant (alcohol) together which will cause the body extra stress. Caffeine, carbonation, and alcohol are all diuretics. This means they drain the body of much needed fluids. As your body loses more and more fluid, you become more and more dehydrated.

Congeners
The ingredients in the alcohol you drink can affect your hangover. Drinks with higher levels of congeners or hops can worsen a hangover. Hops give beer its bitter, crisp taste, but can be hard on the body.

Congeners are a by-product of the process of alcohol fermentation and can exaggerate the symptoms of a hangover. Dark spirits like brandy, whiskey, and red wine contain more congeners than lighter spirits like vodka and white wine.

Quality
The quality of the alcohol makes a difference as well. Cheaper liquors have more impurities and congeners due to lower quality ingredients used and poorer distillation methods. This has caused a recent trend in drinking premium vodka & water. It may not be the best tasting libation, but it is one of the healthier cocktails available.

Examples of healthy alcoholic drinks

Some healthy alcoholic drinks can be found at our healthy drinks post. One of the most popular solutions is mixing vodka with soda. Or even cutting cranberry or orange juice with soda to lower the sugar content. For example, order a premium vodka (Titos) with club soda and a splash of cranberry. The splash of cranberry and squeeze of lime will add some flavor without adding much sugar.

Taking Preventative Measures

Easy one, consume some water while drinking. Pair that with your healthy alcoholic drinks. But dehydration is not the only factor in your hangover. You need to get your body the nutrients it needs to help prevent your next hangover. You can do that by consuming this… Bananas are an excellent source of B-vitamins and potassium. Eggs are a great source of cysteine, as previously mentioned. Many fruits, vegetables, and herbs are great sources of antioxidants. Supplementing is often an easier way to get concentrated amounts of antioxidants.

The Easier, More Convenient Alternative

Let’s be honest, nobody wants to tell their friends or date to hold on a minute while you go stuff your face with bananas and eggs to try and prevent your next hangover. There is a much simpler alternative and you probably know what I’m talking about.

There are a lot of stories behind the origins of classic cocktails

Have you ever wondered where your favorite cocktails came from? Or who was the genius who came up with it? Well, you are not alone. People have been asking these questions for years, and some brave folks went searching through history of cocktails to find the answers.

The drunk history behind classic cocktails is shrouded in a lot of myth and legend, but out of every story, there is an inkling of truth. The word “Cocktail” for instance, was defined in 1806 as “a stimulating liquor composed of any kind of sugar, water and bitters…” by a New York Newspaper called “The Balance, and Colombian Repository.” But cocktails themselves existed long before the term was coined as the name for Mixed Drinks. Let’s take a look at the history of cocktails.


History Behind Classic Cocktails

1. Tom Collins

The Drunk History Behind Classic Cocktails

Unlike cocktails that made someone a household name – sorry to say – there was no real Tom Collins. This classic cocktail actually got its name from a prank that was pulled on some New Yorkers back in 1874, and every bartender in the place was in on the joke. It [supposedly] all started with a friend telling another friend that a guy named Tom Collins had been talking smack about them at a particular bar – but because this was 1870’s, it might have gone more like “Tom Collins, that old Lush, was here speaking ill about your person and mizzled down to [insert bar here].”

Of course any New Yorker worth their salt would go after the scoundrel to clear his name, via fisticuffs I’m sure, and would be directed on a wild goose chase by bartenders throughout the city. That was until some bartenders got clever and began serving the Gin cocktail when folks came in looking for ‘Tom Collins’. So a silly prank, and ironically Victorian values, gave rise to one heck of a cocktail.

Check out the recipe for our Tom Collins derivative the Tom’s Carolina Cousin.

2. The Martini

The origins of this classic cocktail are highly contested, and have sparked coastal rivalry between the many cities that claim to be its birthplace. It has been speculated that the Martini was named after the Martini & Rossi Company, an Italian distiller and exporter of sparkling wines and vermouths, one of the main ingredients of the namesake cocktail. Other Libation Historians say it was named after bartender Martini di Arma di Taggia, who made the cocktail for John D. Rockefeller at the Knickerbocker Hotel in New York, before in installation of Prohibition.

Vodka would later take the place of Gin in the Martini following the end of WWII, and would remain the popular version of the cocktail. Martinis have become the classic cocktail of Hollywood, featured in movies and TV shows from James Bond to Will and Grace. Whoever the Martini is named for may forever remain a mystery; However, the real question remains, Shaken or Stirred?

3. Long Island Ice Tea

It’s the unholy mixture of clear spirits, Triple Sec, and Coca-Cola that your bartender wished you didn’t order, but tastes so good. The history of the Long Island Ice Tea is often contested by many bartenders. But the story goes that the LIT was a contest entry by a bartender named Robert “Rosebud” Butt, while he worked at the bar of the Oak Beach Inn in New York back in the 70’s.

Despite having zero Iced Tea in the recipe, the LIT gets its name from the color mixture of Coke and Sour Mix. There’s a reason why it’s abbreviation is LIT, because it will get you lit fast, but hit you hard the next day. As Ethan Flex put it, if we ever need a Patron Saint of Bad Hangovers, we elected Rosebud.

4. Sazerac

Good old New Orleans is the home of the French Quarter pharmacy where the Sazerac was created. This Pre-Prohibition era cocktail was invented by a Creole pharmacist named Antoine Peychaud in 1838. Peychaud, who is also the inventor of Peychaud’s bitters, created the original recipe which was a combination of rye whiskey, Absinthe, rich simple syrup, and Peychaud’s Bitters. After the FDA banned Absinthe in the US, the the Sazerac Company began to use Herbsaint, an anise-flavored liquor, as a substitute for Absinthe.

The Sazerac is the official Cocktail of the Big Easy, and according to claims made by the Sazerac bar it might be the World’s first mixed drink.

5. Gimlet

Did you know the Gimlet was invented to battle scurvy? Vitamin C deficiency, also known as scurvy for you land lubbers out there, was a serious problem for sailors before the turn of the 20th century. [According to the most popular origin story] In the 1860’s, Mr. Lauchlin Rose created a lime juice based cordial that did not require refrigeration, for sailors to take on long voyages. Sailors, being sailors, began to add other liquors such as Gin, Rum, and Whiskey to the cordial and the Gimlet, as we know it, was born.

The Gimlet possibly got its name from Rear-Admiral Thomas Gimlette, a naval surgeon who is also credited with its introduction as a scurvy-battling medication to the British Navy. From scurvy fighting, to Pinterest worthy, the Gimlet became world famous around 60 years ago because of Raymond Chandler’s The Long Goodbye, in which he wrote, “A real gimlet is half gin and half Rose’s Lime Juice and nothing else. It beats martinis hollow.” The rest is delicious history.

Have you ever wondered “Why do we drink for St. Patrick’s Day?”

st paddy lazyday

If you thought that St. Patrick’s day was about getting drunk, you’re right. The green-soaked holiday is a great time to douse your sensibilities and your bellies with plenty of booze, wine, and spirits. However, most people (Wikipedia included) haven’t the slightest idea what the holiday is really about. Believe it or not, it’s not the celebration of luck, leprechauns, or Guinness.

By now, most people have heard of Saint Patrick (the patron saint of Ireland), a catholic saint who supposedly drove the snakes out of Ireland. Some people have probably heard about Brigid of Kildare (we celebrate his “feast day” on February 1st). If you’re really thinking of Ireland, you might even know about Saint Columba, who is celebrated on June 9th. Why do we all celebrate Saint Patrick, and why does he get a whole day to himself? Want to try hangover supplement samples?

There are actually a few theories for Saint Patrick’s Day:

The first and most likely reason that we celebrate Saint Patrick’s day is because of the Catholic Church. This would mean that St. Patrick’s Day is more than just Irish whiskey. St. Patrick’s Day commemorates Christianity’s arrival to Ireland. The Catholics then led a celebration for the Irish, celebrating heritage and culture. This is where the clover comes into play- three leaf clovers (not four-leaf ones) are supposed to help explain the holy trinity (the father, the son, and the holy ghost), and parades and festivals were all spangled with green attire to match the clover.

Rumors suggest that he was abducted by Irish Raiders for 6 years, and eventually escaped by converting pagan Irish people to Christianity. March the 17th, according to the Irish, is the date of his death, and was dedicated as a public holiday in 1903 so that Irishman, atheist, and the devout could all celebrate his demise. Believe it or not in 1903, an Irish leader named O’Mara coined it a national holiday, but also declared that all pubs were to be closed on March 17th.

So, Drinking Wasn’t Kosher on St. Patrick’s Day- Insanity!st pattys skip-01

This tradition carried on in Ireland until the 1970’s (with plenty of bootleg parties by the locals) when the decision to abolish the drinking ban was revoked on the 17th of March. This actually began the decline of the holiday, as many of the Irish weren’t too fond of it anyways. It was still practiced as a religious holiday in Ireland as a holiday of the Catholic Church.

So How Did Saint Patrick’s Day and Irish Whiskey Get to America?

It’s pretty obvious that lots of Irish people came to America during the potato famine. Because of this, there are actually more Irish people in the United States than there are in Ireland. In the 1990’s, a crafty Irish marketer brought up the old holiday, and instead tied it to Ireland’s national identity. The tradition stuck, and we’ve been celebrating Ireland’s rich history (mostly with corned beef, cabbage, and lots beer and Irish whiskey) ever since.

It wasn’t the first time that people have been drinking for the holiday- some started in 1759 in Canada by some Irish soldiers that were stationed in Montreal. So, why do we celebrate Ireland? It’s not completely cut and dry, but we all agree it’s fun. Just make sure that you’re wearing green, or you might get pinched!hangover cure
