Sorry for the delay in getting a post up for you, Glibs! I have no excuse. I just forgot. January has been a month of constant jackassery. I don’t have any water in the kitchen — and haven’t since the weekend — because of the sub zero temperatures.

This has been such a stressful month so far that when I sat down to write this Products You Need post all I could think about is alcohol.

So, tonight I present to you: Cocktails You Need.

1. Rob Roy

So far as I can tell, this seems to basically be a Scotch version of a Manhattan. Admittedly, I first heard of this in Venture Brothers.

2. Cucumber Gin Ricky

This recipe is simple and makes me daydream about warmer weather coming and thawing out my pipes (not a euphemism). Cucumber, gin, lime, sodawater, and simple syrup.

3. Mango Habanero Margarita

I cannot wait to try this. Tequila, triple sec, mango, habanero, grapefruit soda, lime, and lemon.

4. Red Velvet Cake Martini

Perfect for those who want their cake and to drink it, too. Dessert with booze. What’s not to love?

5. Gold Rush

And, because, whisky, I have one more for you. Whisky, honey syrup, and some other stuff.
