Cheers to a Fresh Start: A Johnny Drinks Guide to New Year’s Celebrations

December 21, 2023.

By John Rondi

“Johnny Drinks” is a father and son duo who went viral by sharing their unique bond over cocktails. Over the years, John and Johnny have surpassed 4 million followers across their channels on TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube. But, this duo goes beyond just drinks, they share their incredible family dynamic by teaching valuable life lessons and fatherly advice to the world.

As we bid farewell to another incredible year, I find myself reflecting on the amazing journey my Dad and I have shared together. 2023 has been a year of growth, creativity, and connection, and I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has supported us and followed along on this adventure. Your unwavering support, encouragement, and enthusiasm does not go unnoticed and genuinely has made our year an amazing one.

Whether you’ve been here from the beginning or joined along the way, we are so thankful for your support and we cannot wait to see what lies ahead in 2024. We look forward to continuing to share this incredible journey with all of you.

New Year’s Eve is a time when we gather as a family to celebrate the passing of time and the blessings yet to come. But New Year’s Eve 2023 – or any year, really – isn’t just about the countdown and reflecting; it’s a full-on celebration. As the clock ticks towards midnight, our home comes alive with the vibrant energy of anticipation.

Two champagne flutes filled with champagne stand on a kitchen counter covered in New Year’s Eve sparkles and glitter.

It’s not just a New Year’s Eve party; it’s one of the best holidays of the year where the craziest memories are made and relationships grow even closer. It’s a cheer to the past, the present, and the future.

As we gear up to welcome the New Year, there’s more to the toast than just the clinking of glasses. Resolutions? Yeah, we’ve all got a bunch of those… but instead of having rigid goals we’d like to recommend having more widespread aspirations for personal growth.

What we sometimes forget to celebrate is the journey and all the hardships it required to achieve it. While it’s fun to celebrate the year coming to a close, it’s always good to take a moment to truly reflect on what you learned over the past year and see how far you’ve come.

It almost seems as though for a moment the clock hits pause, where we all take a breather to look back on the past year – the hard times, the notable victories, and the unforgettable memories. New Year’s is a collective trip down memory lane, that’s why it’s so important to spend it with the ones you love most.

For many of us, we like to spend the night with someone who makes it a lot more interesting – a nice drink (or two). Of course, we would never recommend going overboard; it’s all about the good vibes and added emotion it can bring. We’re toasting, clinking, and spreading positivity– all with a side of moderation, of course.

Our family’s got its own New Year’s Eve cocktails – including one in particular that adds that extra kick to whoever needs it. We like to call this one the Johnny Drinks Fresh Start. Below I share how you make it (because we know you’re going to want to!).

And as the New Year unfolds, why not continue the celebration with Cafe Casino? It’s the perfect place to keep the good times rolling with exciting games and endless winning opportunities. Join us there and let the merriment of new beginnings continue. Here’s to a year of joy, luck, and shared moments at Cafe Casino.
