I guess if you look at this first snowstorm of the season as a glass half full kind of person, you can say at least it happened on a Friday!

So, you've made it through the first storm of the season. You managed to keep calm on the roadways and maybe even had to entertain the kids who had a day off from school. Well, now comes Friday evening and that's your time to kick back and relax and enjoy that one drink that you look forward to during the winter months.

Personally, I have a couple of 'go-to' adult beverages that I tend to drink only in the colder months. One is a Manhattan, while the other is a 7&7. I really enjoy the taste of bourbon and whiskey.

I've never been that much of a vodka/gin or rum kinda girl. But, I find myself only drinking these cocktails during a certain time of year. Once March passes us by, it's back to good ol' Miller Lite or a glass of Chianti (I am after all, known in the family as 'Auntie Chianti')!

So, hopefully, you don't have to work tomorrow, so sit back and either make a cocktail for yourself at home, or even better go out and have someone make it for you! Be careful and imbibe responsibly!
