Happy Hour
Jane, September 2006

Avoid bad pickup lines: Mix these at home.

A woman walks into a bar and doesn't order a cosmo, a screwdriver or a gin and tonic. That's because there's more to a cocktail than something a New York lush with a penchant for men and hypothetical questions drinks on a syndicated TV show. Trust me, I'm her in real life. Here are six bevvies that are really doing it for me right now. And by right now, I mean 10 a.m. The proportions (like my morals) are negotiable.
