Today is a double whammy. Not only is it Monday (which is usually the worst day of the week), but it's the first Monday after daylight savings time. We're not sure about you, but when the alarm went off this morning and it was still dark out we weren't in the most chipper of moods.

There's only one thing in to do on such a day -- spike your coffee. Look, it's not that we're condoning day drinking (that's for Sunday brunch), but this is a holiday and holidays demand to be celebrated. That's right, today, March 10 is National Cocktail Your Coffee Day.

This awesome holiday celebrates one thing and one thing only -- adding a little liquid cheer to your coffee -- like, say, Kahlúa, the Mexican rum/coffee liqueur that just begs to be added to your hot beverage.

Like anything, there's a hashtag, so if you're planning on spiking, share it on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook using #CocktailYourCoffee -- just be sure you're not operating heavy machinery or have a humorless boss before you do.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
