May 30, 2014: If a bar where you purchase alcoholic drinks is known as a “watering hole”, does that mean that Water a Flower Day could be loosely translated into a day where you give flowers some booze? If so how perfect that it’s also Mint Julep Day, so your flowers can have a tasty beverage that’s perfect on a hot, sunny day down here in the south.
If you’re interested, this is, apparently, the perfect mint julep recipe. I’ve never had a cocktail that had to be made a day in advance to let the flavors meld; perhaps it’s time to give this a try.
In other news, my list of holidays also includes birthdays of note; I’m always fascinated at the contrast in celebrity birthdays on some days. Today we celebrate Cee Lo Green, Mel Blanc, Idina Menzel, and Benny Goodman. an intriguing dinner table, that one!
