An Excuse To Drink: Friday the 13th Cocktails
Well everyone, it’s Friday the 13th and its time to get all friggatriskaidekaphobic. From the Babylonians, to the Persians to the early Christians to the Vikings and even the Knights Templar (they were arrested on Friday, October 13, 1307) the number thirteen has been some seriously bad juju.
