The $20 Cocktail -- The Place D'Armes
Pride Of Peru (With Protein!) -- The Pisco Sour

Happy Hour History

Happy Hour. It can be the most wonderful time of the day.  You have no more work (unless you have an unhealthy addiction to your smartphone), a drink in your hand, and the potential for good times.

But when did the concept start?  And how has it evolved over time?  Click here to read an interesting article in a HubSpot marketing blog.   Thanks to my wife, also known as Ms. Wulf Cocktail Den, for seeing the article and sending it to me.

You will learn a lot of interesting facts.  For example, the "happy hour" originated in the U.S. Navy and had nothing to do with drinking.  It wasn't until Prohibition, which brought us great cocktails such as the Scofflaw (as well as the word), that the term became associated with drinking.

Now put your smartphone away and get back to your cocktail.
