National Espresso Day

Happy National Espresso Day! Espresso is a steam-extracted shot of coffee made from the darkest roasted beans. While standard coffee drips through ground beans to extract flavor and aroma, the espresso process is a diferent form of extraction. The beans are ground significantly finer and steam pressure forces hot water through them to produce a more concentrated liquid that is roughly 1/8 the amount that would be produced from the same volume of beans using a drip method.

National Espresso Day is celebrated annually on November 23rd.

National Eggnog Day

National Eggnog Day celebrates that popular holiday beverage made with milk, heavy cream, eggs, sugar and ground spices. Dark rum or Brandy is often added to give the basic mixture a kick, though recipes that include Bourbon are also popular.  A dusting of nutmeg, sprinkling of chopped nuts, a cinnamon stick, and powdered sugar on the rim of the glass are common. Eggnog is most often served chilled, but the drink may be prepared cooked or uncooked . Caution – consumption of raw or undercooked eggs, shellfish and meat may increase the risk of foodborne illness.

Celebrated annually on December 24th.

National Irish Coffee Day

National Irish Coffee Day is one of those rare days that commemorates a drink actually invented in the country that is part of its name! First served at a restaurant in Ireland’s Shannon Airport on a cold day in 1942, the original recipe consisted of black coffee with a shot of Irish Whiskey topped with whipped cream. Irish Coffee was brought to America in 1952 by a travel writer who tasted it at Shannon Airport and shared the original recipe with proprietors of the Buena Vista Cafe on the corner of Beach and Hyde Streets in San Francisco. After trying out several variations, they eventually settled on the recipe still served in the Buena Vista today.

National Irish Coffee Day is celebrated each year on January 25th.
