October is finally here!! The month of Haunted houses, flannels, and pumpkin-everything.
It's no surprise the whole month is filled with the anticipation of Halloween. It’s an excuse to dress up with your friends and hit the town being anyone or anything you want to be. House parties, bar crawls, the possibilities are endless. This year, we’re lucky enough that Halloween is mid-week, so we get two weekends to celebrate!
Halloween is one of the only holidays we enjoy as much postgrad as we did when we were awkward middle-schoolers. Our love for Trick-or-treating and endless candy has turned into a love for costumes and endless drinks. BUT, October is so much more than just Halloween. And we're not talking about PSLs, scary movies, and pumpkin patches (even though those are always great).
October is also a month of drinking. We have put together a list of other V important holidays that you won't want to miss.
National Vodka Day
Whether it’s a vodka soda splash of cranberry or a quick shot in your pumpkin spice latte, you won’t want to miss this excuse to enjoy one of the most popular liquors in the world. There are unlimited ways to enjoy Vodka, but all that matters is that you have some in your life this October 4th! P.S. It falls on a Thursday, so you’ll probably be celebrating National Vodka day at Happy hour anyways.
National Liqueur Day
Now, this is a classy one. End your day with a Nightcap of ANY Liqueur you want! What could be better? It’s the perfect way to spice up your Tuesday!
International Gin and Tonic Day
Yes, you heard that right. INTERNATIONAL Gin and Tonic Day. That means people all over the world are celebrating this one. You don’t even have to think about how you want it. Gin, Tonic, a Lime, and you’re celebrating! Also, International Gin and Tonic Day falls on a Friday, so it's almost too easy to celebrate.
National Brandied Fruit Day
This holiday isn’t so much about drinking as about the amazing things you can do with alcohol. How is brandied fruit made? Fruit, brandy, and sugar. Simple. Enjoy this treat with ice cream, pound cake, whipped cream, or by itself!
National Mezcal Day
It’s Finally Mezcal day. We know this is the one you’ve all been waiting for. What’s Mezcal?! It’s a distilled alcoholic beverage made from agave, duh!! Just kidding, we weren’t sure at first either. Either way, this is a perfect reason to broaden your horizons and try this Mexican delight!
National American Beer Day
Let loose and crack open a cold one at work. No one can say anything because it’s a NATIONAL holiday. Ok don’t do that, but either way, this isn’t a holiday you can pass up. Celebrate the land of Fireworks, F-150’s, and Freedom with an ice cold American Brew. There are almost too many to choose from, so maybe just settle for them all.
