First things first- I’m 24, so yes, I love me some booze. If you’re not 21*, save this for years to come, but don’t go sneaking booze.
*Or however old you need to be to drink legally. You live in one of the many places that allows you to drink when you’re 18?! Right on! I’m super jealous! Enjoy safely!
Okay, so it’s no secret that I love to drink. Not in a drink-to-get-drunk kind of way, but in a damn-this-shit’s-delicious way. I could shout my love for Peppermint Schnapps from the roof tops. Wine Wednesdays happened almost every week that my best friend was on the other coast for college (wine, whining, and Google Hangouts). My sister and I routinely go for Sister Spa days where we will run into the restaurant next door to the spa, order 2 Zombies and a few other drinks, down them as fast as we can while stuffing our faces with sweet potato fries, and then run next door for an hour of hot tubbing and giggles. Booze is a great thing. And it’s really tasty if you do it right, and ridiculously adorable/nerdy/pretty/portable/classy/etc with the right accessories!
