6 Columbus Day Cocktails
Celebrate the holiday tonight with a tasty rum or sambuca cocktail at dinner.
Today is Columbus Day! When we were kids, we had to learn about the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria. As adults, we have the day off and spend the day tackling crowds and getting the best deal at all the Columbus Day sales.
Tonight celebrate two intrepid explorers: Christopher Columbus and you! Columbus for leaving the safe confines of Spain and striking out towards the New World and raise a glass to yourself! You braved the mall and came home with some sweet deals.
