On 24 February we celebrate one of the oldest professions… bartending of
course! Though we think of it as a modern age career, bartending can be
traced back to ancient Rome, Greece and Asia. In fact, there is record of a
bartender all the way back to when Julius Caesar ruled Rome. Along popular travel routes, you’d find drinking houses where you could rest your wary feet with a mug of ale and wine. They eventually spread into towns. In the Middle Ages, innkeepers would brew their own beer and wine which they’d serve to their guests. These became taverns and pubs where locals could share a bit of gossip with their tipple.
After the festive season you may want to take a break from booze for a spell, but don’t limit yourself to same old soda pop. Just a couple of dashes Angostura® aromatic bitters is enough to elevate any drink. Don’t believe us? Just try these refreshingly, crisp mocktails and see for yourself.
