All of us are aware of the big holidays such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Independence Day, to name a few. What most of us don’t realize, however, is that most days throughout the year are a “holiday” or national day. For instance, this month we’re celebrating National Liqueur Day, which falls on October 16th. Although there may not be decorations or huge festivals, it’s a great excuse to get together with friends and family and enjoy your favorite cocktail. (Related topics: Only Cabo Tours)
To start, we’d like to identify the difference between liqueur and licor. Both of these alcohols are considered distilled spirits. The main difference, though, is that liqueurs are sweetened with flavors, oils, and extracts. Now that we know the difference, we’re going to discuss the history of liqueur.
They were first used in the 1300’s when European monks used them in medicine. It wasn’t until 1533, though, that it was introduced to the French court. At this time, it was considered a fashionable drink. Moving forward, the British-Indian spice route was opened in 1640. As a result, the variety of liqueurs increased, as there were new flavors available. Since then, liqueur consumption has continued to grow throughout the world.
The great thing about National Liqueur Day is that it can be celebrated anywhere in the world! This includes Cabo San Lucas. While you’re here, ask the bartender what type of liqueurs they have and pick the one that sounds the best. There are usually flavors such as orange, coffee, and coconut.
Another way to celebrate this day is by enjoying Cabo nightlife. We also have Cabo nightlife tour that bring you to the best clubs in Los Cabos! Not only do our Cabo nightlife tours provide transportation, but also welcome drinks at the bar.
