Cappuccino Day - November 8

Cappuccino Day falls on November 8 in honor of the hot coffee with the frothed milk. So many people are addicted to cappuccino - Cappuccino is the perfect drink for a cold day, to meet in a cafe with friends, to walk around with it in a cup with a lid that warms the hands and in general to indulge with it whenever possible.

The cappuccino is traditionally made with espresso, hot milk and frothed milk. The origin of the cappuccino is from Italy.
The origin of the word cappuccino is from the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin, an order of the Catholic Church, where monks wore robes with pointed brown hats reminiscent of the popular coffee color.
The first espresso machine used to make a cappuccino was first introduced in the early 20th century, after Luigi Bazera of Milan patented it in 1901.
In 1945, Achilla Gajia, the owner of a café in Milan, invented the modern espresso machine that was suitable for many cafes and restaurants, thus increasing the popularity of cappuccino.
In the mid-1990s cappuccino became a popular beverage in North America, in upscale cafes.
By the late 1990s to the early 2000s, the cappuccino had already become the domain of all cafes for their visitors, while booming in the American coffee industry.
At the beginning of the 21st century, cappuccinos also began to be served in fast food chains.
Cappuccino has also gained popularity in the United Kingdom, due to the British custom of drinking coffee with milk.

When making cappuccino, great care must be taken to arrive at the right ratio of foam and hot milk. The lower third of the cabbage contains the espresso, and the next two thirds consist equally of the hot milk and the whipped part.
A skilled barista can also create artistic forms while he / she pours the frothed milk. The artistic illustrations on top of the foam are called "latte art".

How to celebrate Cappuccino Day?
Of course, Cappuccino Day can be celebrated by drinking cappuccino, it can be done at home alone, if you have an espresso machine, or with friends / family / neighbors / acquaintances. You can drink it at work or in a cafe. No matter where and with whom you drink the cappuccino - it's today to savor this addictive and refreshing drink!

Eggnog Day - December 24

Eggnog is a drink that is based on milk and eggs and is usually drunk in the US and Canada during the Christmas season, which lasts from the end of November to the end of December.
This Egg liqueur is a rich milk drink, full of cream, sweetened and frothy spiced with nutmeg or cinnamon, which is sometimes prepared with distilled spirits such as brandy, rum, whiskey or bourbon.
The egg liqueur evolved from Posset, a medieval European drink made from hot milk mixed with wine or ale to which spices are added. The drink was common only among the nobility because of its expensive ingredients that prevented the villagers from drinking it. In the cities the common people had no milk, and only the aristocracy could obtain it.
The first time the name "Egg Nog" was used was in 1775, when the clergyman and philologist Jonathan Butcher of Maryland wrote a poem about him that was surprisingly not published until 30 years after his death.

And this is the song he wrote:

“Fog-drams in the morn,
or better still eggnogg.
At night hot-suppings,
and at mid-day, grogg.
My palate can regale”

The first printed use of the term was in 1788 in a New Jersey newspaper on March 26, which referred to a young man drinking a glass of eggnog.
In the early 19th century, the drink came to the United States. Because of the taxes on brandy and wine, they used to make the bromine drink from the Caribbean. The drink soon became the popular Christmas drink in the United States.
Beginning in the 1960s, a commercial version of the alcoholic beverage, or a non-alcoholic version, began to be sold. During this time they began to serve the drink cold.

How to celebrate Eggnog Day?
You can make an eggnog at home, or buy it. If you have passed the age limit for alcohol, you can add alcohol to it.

December 24 is also Micronesia's Independence Day
