  • Warmer Days Are Here: Get Your Mule On!

    Posted on May 20, 2016

     

    It's springtime, and the temperatures are warming up. With Memorial Day weekend (the unofficial start of summer) just around the corner, it's time to think about cooler cocktails for the hottest months of the year. And one of my favorites is the classic Moscow Mule.

     

    So named because vodka is one of the key ingredients, no one knows for sure who invented the libation. We've named our American made Jack's Moscow Mule Cup after John "Jack" Morgan, the president of Cock 'n' Bull products and owner of Hollywood's Cock 'n' Bull restaurant in the early '40s. He along with two other friends experimented with vodka, ginger beer, and lime and came up with a tasty beverage that was worthy of its own name.

     

    It's one of the simplest concoctions to make. Just add 2 ounces of vodka and 3 to 4 ounces of ginger beer (ginger beer isn't beer at all, but a sweet soda; you can also use ginger ale if you're in a pickle and don't have any ginger beer ready) to a copper Moscow Mule cup or highball glass filled with ice. Stir briefly, then squeeze a couple of lime wedges into the drink. Stir again, drop the wedges in, and then sip and savor! It's one of the most refreshing ways to cool off your tastebuds on a warm day.

  • A Day for Mom

    Posted on May 3, 2016

     

    Whether you call yours mom, mother, or mama, this coming Sunday -- May 8 -- is her special day! But why do we celebrate moms in America, and how did the holiday originate? It's a tale that stretches back to ancient times...

     

    Celebrations of mothers and motherhood date back to the ancient Romans and Greeks, who held festivals in honors of goddesses. An early Christian holiday for mothers was called "Mothering Sunday" and used to be held in part of Europe and the UK. It was traditionally held on the fourth Sunday of Lent and was meant as a time when churchgoers would return to their "mother church" for a special service. In time, children would honor their mothers on this day with flowers and gifts -- a tradition that faded in popularity once Mothers Day became a nationally recognized holiday in Great Britain.

     

    In the U.S., however, Mother's Day has its roots in the 19th century in the years before the Civil War. Ann Reeves Jarvis held "Mothers Day Work Clubs" in West Virginia to give parenting tips to young mothers. The clubs made their way across the country and in 1868 Jarvis started "Mothers' Friendship Day" in which mothers gathered with their solder sons.

     

    Mother's Day became an official holiday in the U.S. thanks to Jarvis' daughter Anna. After her mother passed away in 1905, Anna sought a holiday to honor her as well as all mothers that have made sacrifices. In May 1908 she organized the first Mother's Day celebration at a West Virginia church and by 1912 many other states had joined in on the tradition. It became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. At a time when women still didn't have the right to vote, Mother's Day was one small step towards recognizing women -- specifically mothers -- for all that they do.

     

    So don't forget your mom this Sunday, and be sure to tell her you're thankful for all that she does!
