#HappyHourClub: Case of the Mondays

Ever had a case of the Mondays? Well, if there's a drizzle of rain in LA like today, then I'm betting you have. Traffic, Mondays and rain don't mix in Los Angeles. Traffic jam galore and 4 more days of work tend to weigh heavy when you just had a sunny weekend. A solution from the #HappyHourClub but in shot form: Case of the Mondays. Simple and easy to do so you don't have to sigh out loud about more work. Mix together 1 part scotch, 1 part bourbon, 1 part apple brandy and a dash of St Germain. It's a pretty gnarly drink but I guarantee you won't be thinking about the hour and half you just spent in traffic. Now hit play on Damn It Feels Good To Be A Gangsta by Geto Boys and show this Monday who's boss.
