A couple of mixologists have created special cocktails honoring King that are perfect for celebrating his big day.
New York-based drinkmaster Daniel Delson invented a concoction called the King Cola, which blends Coca Cola, Jim Beam, Chambord, and a cherry garnish together for a delicious MLK Jr. Day cocktail.
Delson says the drink has a sweet southern charm to it, and can be enjoyed by everyone, everywhere.
But Boston-based mixologist Steve Capioccia thinks his drink, The MLK, is the one thatll have people marching in the streets.
The MLK combines Captain Morgan Rum, light cream, and Kahlua in a glass rimmed with sugar and instant coffee, with a Hershey Kiss garnish on top.
And while Capioccia understands that King wasnt a big drinker, he believes MLK would appreciate The MLK because the idea behind it is to bring people together and inspire curiosity about Kings legacy, and remind people of the impact he had on America.
