National Drinking Days

We all know about Saint Patrick’s Day. What about all of the fun adult national drinking days of the year that we may be missing out on?


National Bloody Mary Day - January 1 – The perfect drink for cheap vodka. The Bloody Mary is the US’s most popular alcoholic drink for brunch. The Bloody Mary is considered “The World’s Most Complex Cocktail.” This is because it covers almost the entire range of human taste sensations.  classic-bloody-mary (1)

National Margarita Day – February 22 – Meaning Daisy in Spanish. You probably don’t want to let the name fool you. This cool summertime drink made with your favorite tequila will sneak up on you pretty fast. Jimmy Buffett’s 1977 release of “Margaritaville” says all you need to know about the Margarita.


National Absinthe Day – March 5 – At 124 proof and known for its greenish appearance, Absinthe takes its name from the Greek word wormwood. Despite popular belief Absinthe is legal and it will not make you hallucinate.national-absinthe-day

National Beer Day – April 7 – Due to the end of prohibition, April 7, 1933 was the first day people could legally buy and drink beer again.


National Wine Day - May 25 -Finally, a holiday to do what we do everyday anyways!


National Martini Day – June 19 – Martini facts-
– Always stir a traditional martini, never shake it. Shaking causes the gin to bruise.
-It is considered unlucky to have 2 olives in a martini. 1 or 3… never 2
-Garnished with a real diamond, you can buy a $10,000 martini at the Algorquin Hotel in New York City.




National Tequila Day – July 24 – Tequila is a distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant. Most people think that blue agave is from the cactus family. However, it actually stems from the lily family


National Whiskey Sour Day - August 2 – Dating back to the late 1800’s. The Whiskey Sour may not be the most popular drink out there. But, could very well be one of the best!

National Talk like a pirate Day – September 19 – Drink some rum and talk like a pirate….

-Shiver me timbers.
-Lad or Lassie
– Blimey
– Dead men tell no lies.
What’s your favorite pirate saying?


National Vodka Day – October 4 – Russian word “Zhiznennia Voda” which means “THE WATER OF LIFE” Vodka is the highest selling liquor in the United States. Vodka can be made of just about anything that is fermentable. Unlike other spirit’s, vodka does not need to be stored and matured.


National Gin Day – November 7 – The Gin Rickey -Made in a high-ball glass of gin, ice, sparkling water and a half squeezed lemon dropped in, the Gin Rickey was the most popular drink of the 19th and 20th century.

Choosing the right bartending school

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

When choosing a bartending school, remember you want to make sure you’re spending your money wisely. Tuition at a Maryland state licensed school must be a set rate, and can’t offer deals or specials to try and get you enrolled. Remember: the least expensive school is never the best! If you save a hundred dollars by attending a cheaper school and one closer to home, but never land a bartending job, then your money was wasted.

Here at the Maryland Bartending Academy, constantly have people who compared us to other state bartending schools and decided to enroll with us, even though many of them live minutes away from less expensive schools. They choose us for many reasons. Here are a few of them.
Founded in 1980, we are Maryland’s oldest professional bartending school; we have trained & placed more of our students than all other MD bartending schools combined; Because of our outstanding reputation, 8 out of every 10 new enrollments are referred to us. We also have one of the most realistic, state-of-the-art training facilities in the country. We come highly recommended by the people who matter the most… the people who hire bartenders.

Do some research
Get a free Better Business Bureau report on the school you are considering.
How long has the school been in business?
Read GOOGLE reviews from past grads and hear what they have to say.
Ask about the curriculum, and how often is it revised.
Does the school offer additional practice time throughout the course
and free refresher classes after you graduate?
Is the school an approved training facility by Professional Bartending Schools of America?
Can the school offer nationwide job placement assistance to all graduates

A good bartending school will have a friendly and knowledgeable staff. The classrooms should be set up just like a real bar and equipped with POS (point of sale) terminals, ice machines, hot and cold running water behind their bars, cocktail units, soda guns, draught beer, blenders, professional bar tools, glassware, live feed video cameras for student evaluations/training, custom lighting and sound system, and flat screen TV’s.

You should be able to attend a free introductoty class, or at least, be able to tour of the schools facility. Take advantage of the offer. Ask to see the training manuals, placement records, and an actual class in session, or at least walk through the classroom. The classroom should be clean, neat and look like a real bar.
