Tough Times Call For Stiff Drinks

Feeling blue? Have a good, stiff drink.

Feeling blue? Have a good, stiff drink.

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – When life hands you lemons, turn them into a nice, stiff cocktail.

The world is full of big problems that major world leaders are working to fix, but the small hiccups in life can easily be fixed with a good drink, and Valerie Peterson is here to provide the recipes.

In her book, Peterson’s Happy Hour: Spirited Cocktails And Helpful Hints To Brighten Daily Life (Clarkson Potter) out June 1, she attacks the little issues that upset the day with an accompanying cocktail to make it all better.

Or at the very least, to help people forget about it for a little while.

If someone accidentally trash-talked their boss in an email that was copied to the head honcho’s inbox, office drones might want to shake up a “Pink Slip-Per Sangria.”

It combines fresh fruit, brandy, and rose wine with a splash of club soda, so the pain of being fired or put on probation hurts less.
