Video: Two Cocktails to Help You Celebrate St. John the Baptist

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 06/23/15

Michael Foley shows us how to drink with the saints

If you like pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain, and you also want to celebrate the great saint John the Baptist this week, this one's for you. Baylor University professor and author, Michael P. Foley, whose latest book is Drinking With the Saints: The Sinners' Guide to a Holy Happy Hour demonstrates how to make two summer drinks to celebrate the Baptist's feast day on June 24, or on any warm day. The recipes are simple, and Foley explains the tradition behind why they are perfect concoctions to toast the man who made way for the Messiah.
