We made this cocktail on Happy Hour Day (yes, that is actually a thing), but this cocktail is perfect for Cinco de Mayo or any day over 20 C degrees! Where did the term "happy hour" originate? And how did it spread across the world?
"Happy hour" can be traced back to the United States Navy where it referred to all periods of indulgence during World War I. As relates to drinking, it first made its appearance during prohibition in the US. The term referred to that time spent at a speakeasy before retiring to restaurants no longer able to serve alcohol (a truly happy time).
This quick and easy recipe will without a doubt bring you truly happy times as well. The bright tartness from the limes, the tangy freshness from the triple sec, and sweetness from the agave nectar blend into a perfectly-balanced cocktail.
