Startijenn (noun) \ star-tee-zhen \

If you’re feeling amped, then you’ve got startijenn. The word translates to “dynamism” in Breton, an ancient Celtic language spoken in Brittany. Originally, startijenn signified vitality and spirit, but it can also indicate an energy-boosting beverage. Looking to fuel up for the night ahead? Ask a bartender for some startijenn, and you may receive a stiff drink in return. —Laura Neilson
