It’s National Happy Hour Day, and we’re here to celebrate with help from Bombay Sapphire!

You might be surprised to learn that you can thank the US Navy for the invention of happy hour. When bored Naval officers needed a morale booster, they turned to an early evening of drinking, dancing, and boxing matches. The term existed at the beginning of 1900, but it was the Navel boredom reliever in 1914 that truly caused the concept to take off.

This year, we’re celebrating National Happy Hour Day with three delicious and refreshing gin-based cocktails from Bombay Sapphire. Bombay & Tonic is a classic cocktail perfect for everyone, or if you’re feeling a little seasonal, try the Bombay Cranberry G&T. Looking for something a little different? Mix up a Bombay Mule and make a toast to the holiday! Bombay Sapphire is the perfect bottle to reach for this National Happy Hour Day thanks to its smooth, unique flavor profile made from 10 all-natural botanicals.
