Louis Pasteur was born on this day in 1822. Why do we care? Quoting from Wikipedia, “He is best known to the general public for his invention of the technique of treating milk and wine to stop bacterial contamination, a process now called pasteurization”. Let’s raise a glass to Pasteur, thankful that we don’t have to deal with bacterial contamination.

Option #1:
Wine – of course

Option #2:
Brandy Milk Punch – just in case you are still looking for a morning libation.

Quoting from late night TV, but wait, there’s more! We need something to go with that wine, how about cheese? In the US that is what we get, pasteurized cheese but in France you can still get it unpasteurized which is said to enhance the flavor. I think a road trip is in order.

And seeing that today is Constitution Day in North Korea we could celebrate that. On second thought, what fun is a celebration with no food or beverages?
