Alcohol Sales SKYROCKET
Alcohol sales are up a massive amount compared to this time last year, what are you drinking...?
According to Marketwatch.com sales of alcohol are up massive amounts compared to March of 2019. With the Coronavirus crisis spreading throughout the United States, and having bars and restaurants closed to public seating, its no wonder we are buying more alcohol. According to Marketwatch.com they say...
"U.S. sales of alcoholic beverages rose 55% in the week ending March 21, according to market research firm Nielsen. Spirits like tequila, gin and pre-mixed cocktails led the way, with sales jumping 75% compared to the same period last year. Wine sales were up 66% while beer sales rose 42%. And online sales far outpaced in-store sales."
I had no idea you could even buy alcohol online! If you listen to the morning show "Mornings w/Mark and Sam" then you know I like to keep it simple with my drinking, I drink Miller Lite, and Jack Daniels. I will say those recently I've been hooked on a specific version of Jack and Coke using Coke Zero, not as tasty but with all the food I have been eating during quarantine it is nice to cut some calories out!
I want to know what you're drinking during the Quarantine! So send me suggestions on drinks to make, beers to try, or heck even wines, I am up for anything! Send them to me on Twitter @MarkHespen or Instagram @MarkHespen.
