Whilst there isÂ technically nothing wrong with dollar tonic, the Jack Rudy Cocktail Companyâ€™s small batch tonic is a far tastier alternative for the discerning drinker.
On the 17th January 1920 the US Congress passed the 21st Amendment which repealed Prohibition and the nation staggered blinking from Speakeasies into daylight.
You can raise your glass in honor of the reform, because now, in as little as 36 hours, you can make your own gin at home - no bathtub required.
Almost as exciting as your day of birth, this year June 1 is celebrated internationally as Ardbeg day. The day changes in accordance with the last day of the Islay Festival - the small Scottish Island where this big, peaty whisky comes from.
Ardbeg is a whisky to be reckoned with, winning Best Whisky in the World three years running. Founded in 1815, from a soggy peat bog it certainly has the unique robust flavour characteristic of the Islay Single Malts.
This year the event is called Ardbog in celebration of a newly released limited edition whisky and is themed around archaeology (?!) hence most events having a Big Dig competition. The festivities sound hilarious and we strongly recommend you get involved in your local city.
So dust off your wellingtons and your tweed and raise a dram all Ardbeggians around the world to celebrate the tasty tipple!
