Tomorrow is National Pistachio Day!!
Did you know that Pistachios are an excellent source of Vitamin B6, protein, fiber, thiamine and phosphorus? US Food and Drug Administration even suggests eating 1.5 ounces of nuts per day, such as pistachios to help reduce the risk of heart disease. Also, another fun fact, most manufacturers dye their nuts so they get that bright green color. Crazy!
With that said, have you ever had a pistachio flavored drink? Neither have I, so I thought this was the perfect themed drink.
Here are some drink recipes infused with pistachio syrups, pistachio liquor (yes, that is a real thing) or even creatively rimmed or decorated with pistachios. This is for all you Pistachio lovers! So get crankin!
Can’t go wrong with chocolate and pistachio, enough said!

The are many variations to this recipe, but it actually is a Puerto Rican Holiday Traditional drink!
