Happy National Margarita Day!

Today, February 22, is National Margarita Day. Why a holiday celebrating the quintessential summer beverage happens to fall in the dead of winter is a mystery to me. Presumably, some marketing folks somewhere figured they didn’t need the help of a made-up celebration to sell more margaritas during the summer. All across the country, workers that are back in the office are eagerly awaiting Happy Hour so they can visit their local Mexican joint. But you can enjoy National Margarita Day from the comfort of your home office. You do, however, need margarita ingredients (or at the very least pre-made margarita mix plus tequila), as well as margarita glasses.

If your home bar does not have margarita glasses, today is the perfect day to fix that. The classic glassware brand Libbey has a really cool 6-set of fun margarita glasses available for under $40:

Libbey also makes themed margarita glasses to really make you feel like you are in Cancun or Acapulco. A set of 4 of these cactus-shaped glasses is under $30:

Turns out Libbey makes traditional margarita glasses as well, and they are much less expensive—around $30 for 12 of them!

What To Make Of Amazon’s Acquisition Of iRobot

In recent years, you have surely heard the familiar tagline: “If it’s not from iRobot, it’s not a Roomba.” That refrain may be tested going forward, as Amazon just announced it is buying iRobot (the company, not the Will Smith movie) for $1.7 billion. Will they still use the iRobot branding or will Roombas now form part of an “Amazon Robotics” line along with the eminently creepy Amazon Astro? Only time will tell.

Unlike the company founded by Jeff Bezos, you, dear consumer, do not need to spend a billion dollars to own one of these popular robotic vacuum cleaners. Instead you can pay a few hundred bucks. Here are the most popular models currently available on Amazon:

How To Serve An Aperol Spritz

Published

If you have been on TikTok at all lately, you know that the unofficial beverage of summer 2022 is the Aperol Spritz. The Italian cocktail has been growing in popularity in recent years, but it seems to have really taken off when the tourism floodgates to Italy opened post-COVID restrictions.

In addition to their European nature (Europe is very in right now), the Aperol Spritz has also won plaudits for its simplicity. It is incredibly easy to make. All you need is Aperol, Prosecco, and sparkling water.

There is only one question that seems to arise when making Aperol Spritzes for your friends and family: What type of glasses should you serve it in? Now, since it is something you want to keep cold you could always drink it out of a vacuum-insulated cocktail glass like the metal marg glasses made by Better Dweller. But if you want to go more traditional, then you should use a white wine glass. This set is ideal:

At the end of the day, an Aperol Spritz isn’t a cocktail like an Old Fashioned or Hurricane that has a speciality glass designed for it. You can enjoy it out of a white wine glass, a red wine glass, or even a highball glass. It will taste delicious any way you serve it!
