What's everyone's most awesome-estly super favorite substance on earth? Alcohol of course (I knew you'd agree with me). Yet, there exists a problem that I see all too frequently: people drinking shitty, boring, and immature drinks. If you're a grownup, then you've got grownup problems, and you should be drinking grownup libations to avoid those grownup problems. A can of PBR or a "Sex on the Beach" cocktail is fine when your sole mission in life (typically around 18 yrs. old) is to get shitfaced and wake up in a different state every weekend. But with age comes wisdom, a bit more regret, and an increasing level of alcohol-related maturity.
So to provide my students with the best possible advice and knowledge in this realm, I've hired a pro. Today you'll be hearing from Dr. Becca, the official Cynicism 101 Mixology Consultant. My good blogger friend has agreed to do recurring posts here in which she'll school us in the art of drinking like a grownup by occasionally providing us with trendy, distinguished, and exciting libations! She's also funny as hell, so I expect you guys to be following her blog over at Fumbling Toward Tenure Track and/or catching her on Twitter, right? Right. Without further ado, I present Dr. Becca!
