Hump Day Happy Hour: March Madness On Crack

March Madness began last week.  For those of you who don’t know, it is the huge NCAA college basketball tournament. I happened to be in Las Vegas when it began, and let me tell you, those people were definitely on something. Was it crack, or just a shit ton of alcohol, we will never know. What I do know is that it was crazy. Now, I am not a big basketball fan, but this year Houston is the lucky host of the Final Four so I thought I should celebrate that with a cocktail (even though my team lost in the first round…).

1 oz Peach Schnapps
1 oz Triple Sec
1 1/2 oz Vodka
4 oz  Monster Energy Drink
3 oz Orange Gatorade

Mix it all together and serve in a highball glass.

* The recipe actually calls for Amp energy drink but I personally think it is disgusting so I changed it to Monster. If you are anti-energy drink, I imagine this drink would taste good without that ingredient, although you may want to add some soda so its not too strong…

The Anti-Happy Hour

Ok, let’s say you had one too many cocktails at Hump Day Happy Hour and you need a remedy STAT.  I have found a simple concoction that will take the edge off of that hangover.


Mix halfsies Gatorade and 7UP.

The Gatorade will recharge you and the bubbles will help the tum tum.
