Oy yez, Oy yez, let it be heard, this is the OFFICIAL WORLD ANNOUNCEMENT of International Exotic Cocktail Day, October 1st, 2010.
Ah, it feels good to establish a new holiday, and one that’s long overdue. Sure, there are other days like it…but not the actual, official, one-of-a-kind International Exotic Cocktail Day.
Pass the word! Tell your friends! Tell your co-workers! Tell your bartender!
What is International Exotic Cocktail Day? IECD, from now on to be held on Friday of October each year is a day to celebrate the pleasure of enjoying an Exotic Cocktail at your favorite Tiki Bar, on the lanai, by the pool or on the front lawn. It’s a day to imbibe in your favorite mixes with friends and family. It’s a day to remember the people who started it all and the people who keep the traditions alive today!
How to Celebrate International Exotic Cocktail Day: Share recipes with your friends, gather in crowds and drink exiting concoctions around your Tiki bar, or meet up at the Mai Kai (or your favorite Tiki Lounge). Whatever floats your boat, kids! Be sure to garnish everything you drink that day with a cocktail umbrella, pineapple slice and a cherry, even at work. Drink virgin frozen drinks at work all day and add the booze later on. Have an “over the air” cocktail party where you and your online friends around the world make the same drinks at the same time and tweet or FB your results, and toast each other across the globe. Try to make exotic cocktails you’ve never had before, or go with your old favorites. Have buttons and stickers made up that say “International Exotic Cocktail Day”. Go ahead, after all, it’s International Exotic Cocktail Day, so have a ball!
How International Exotic Cocktail Day got started: I was sipping a Blue Hawaiian one evening while looking for ideas for upcoming Tiki Lounge Talk posts when I decided to google “Exotic Cocktail Day”. Nothing came up as an actual day of remembrance and revelry, so like a good Tiki kid I found it my duty to execute this all-important holiday.
How to share this great news: If you’re reading this than no doubt you’re on board with this great holiday. Spread the word, kids! Twitter your pals, post it on Facebook & MySpace, Digg it, blog it, send out a mass email, whatever you can do to get your F&F in on it. Remember, it’s all about living the kool and breezy Tiki lifestyle, so get hip, kids!
