National Beverage Day

National Beverage Day is an annual American holiday dedicated to beverages. It is celebrated on May 6. Drinks have existed since ancient times and it is impossible to describe all the moments of their history. With each century the number of existing drinks increased exponentially. Today we can choose a drink to quench our thirst or simply to pamper our taste buds, from a myriad of options.


There is no reliable information about National Beverage Day. Some researchers believe that it evolved from Carbonated Bottled Drinks Day, which began in the 1920s. It is just that later the scope of the holiday expanded to refer to all existing beverages, regardless of the composition and container they are contained in.

The most primitive beverages were herbal ingredients mixed with water. In ancient times, they were usually used for medicinal or ceremonial purposes. The driving factor for the emergence of new drinks was human curiosity and thirst for experimentation – people simply mixed different ingredients with a liquid base and got a certain drink.

Today there is a huge variety of drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Celebrate the day with a glass or glass of your favorite drink!
