Black Cow Day is celebrated by fans of a refreshing cocktail. This is the name of a refreshing drink of only 2 ingredients: non-alcoholic beer and a scoop of ice cream. It seems the recipe is too simple, but the Black Cow drink is very popular in many countries. If you have never tried, this is a great day to do it.
It is believed the American Frank Wiesner was the first to make the Black Cow. He owned a soda company. One night, he was contemplating a new drink. The entrepreneur got the idea to make a drink based on root beer (made from sassafras roots, harmless, non-alcoholic, often sold in candy stores). That night, he looked out the window and saw the moon light up the top of Cow Mountain. He associated this look with ice cream. Frank Wiesner decided to try adding ice cream to the root beer. Having done it, he realized he had prepared a real masterpiece.
The entrepreneur called his drink Black Cow Mountain, which was later shortened to Black Cow. This drink has become a hit among people of all ages. Given its popularity, Black Cow Day was created. It is customary to enjoy this tasty cocktail on the day. It is refreshing, so summer is the best time to enjoy it.
