Day Drinking | Belated Holiday Drinks...

Yes, you read the title right... This is a post about holiday drinks. I do realize that I am about two weeks too late but Day made all of these wonderful drinks for me to post and I didn't get a chance to because I was having car trouble right before Christmas and I ended up staying at my parents' house for a few days and I left my camera at my apartment, so I couldn't get the post done. Tons of excuses, I know.

But I figured screw it! I like alcohol. Other people like alcohol. Who cares if the drinks are technically holiday themed! Plus Day texted me the other day asking me where the post was -- My bad.

So lets get into these drinks...
