Do You Bake? - National Liqueur Day - October 16


 National Liqueur Day is celebrated annually on October 16. This day celebrates the countless types and flavors of liqueur.

The word liqueur comes from the Latin liquifacere (“to liquefy”).

A liqueur is an alcoholic beverage which is made from a distilled spirit that has been flavored with fruit, cream, herbs, spices, flowers or nuts and is then bottled with added sugar or other sweetener.  Typically quite sweet, liqueurs are usually not aged long, however, there is a resting period during their production to allow the flavors to marry.

With as many spirits as are available today in flavored form, such as flavored vodka or rum, there is often confusion of liqueurs and liquors.  In the United States and Canada, spirits are often called “liquor”.   The most reliable rule of thumb to follow is that liqueurs are quite sweet and are often syrupy in consistency, while liquors are not.  Most of the liqueurs have a lower alcohol content than spirits, however, some do contain as much as 55% ABV.

In some parts of the United States, liqueurs may also be called cordials or schnapps.

Liqueurs are historical descendants of herbal medicines. They were made in Italy as early as the 13th century and were often prepared by monks. (Wikipedia) 

While Do You Bake? doesn't carry Liqueurs, might I suggest the 
Tipsy Chicken or the Tipsy Beef for dinner tonight?

Do You Bake? - National Taco Day - October 4


 National Taco Day is observed annually on October 4th.  Tacos are loved and eaten by millions each day in either hard shells or soft shells with a variety of different fillings.
The history of the taco predates the arrival of Europeans in Mexico.  There is actual anthropological evidence that the native people living in the lake region of the Valley of Mexico traditionally ate tacos that were filled with small fish.  At the time of the Spanish conquistadors, Bernal Diaz del Castillo documented the first taco feast enjoyed by Europeans. This was a meal that was arranged by Hernan Cortes for his captains in Coyoacan.   It is unclear as to why the Spanish used their word “taco” to describe this native food.

Many restaurants offer specials for National Taco Day.
