Welcome to March 24th, 2023 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate saucy tails and movie sidekicks.
Considering how long alcohol has been part of human culture, it’s surprising that the first cocktail wasn’t invented until the 1800s. Antoine Peychaud created the Sazerac in New Orleans using cognac, sugar, absinthe, and a dash of bitters. The name Sazerac comes from the brand of French cognac that was used, but these days the primary ingredient is rye whiskey. And why do we call these drinks cocktails? Supposedly, that first cocktail was served in an egg cup—or, in French, a coquetier—a word that morphed into cocktail. On National Cocktail Day, mix yourself a glass of your favorite drink.
Raisinets are number 3 on the list of all time best selling candies. Created by the Blumenthal Brothers in 1927, Raisinets along with Snowcaps and Goobers are still manufactured to this day. That’s a pretty good run for a candy that’s been around for nearly 100 years, although Nestle has been making them since 1984. The best explanation for their longevity seems to be their association with movie theaters. Popcorn enjoys this same claim to fame and we are not complaining! On National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day, make your home theater pop with your favorite movie sidekick.
