    52 Unexpectedly Delicious Booze Combos That Will Make You Miss Bars A Little Less

    Welcome to your hangover.


    Rule #1 of Quarantine Drinking:

    No one is allowed to judge you for drinking like you did in college.

    Rule #2:

    Hangovers don't count.

    Rule #3:

    Coconut rum tastes good with just about anything.

    OK, without further ado, let's get started. My fingers are crossed for you that some of these ingredients are currently sitting in your kitchen, waiting to be creatively combo'd any day now.

    1. Mountain Dew + Tequila

    2. Honey Whiskey + Coke (Ice Cream Optional)

    A different twist on the Jack & Coke. Tastes like a liquid Werther’s butterscotch candy.


    3. Peach Whiskey + Lemonade

    4. Malibu Rum + Hot Chocolate

    5. Coconut Rum + Root Beer /

    I got bored one night in college and it ended up tasting like an alcoholic cream soda. Been sinking it ever since! —Ramon

    6. Sprite + Raspberry Schnapps

    7. Heavy Whipping Cream + Coconut Pineapple Sparkling Ice + Vodka = Keto Piña Colada

    8. Beer + Sprite = Shandy, Sorta

    "In Germany, a Radler is a half and half mix of either Sprite or sparkling lemonade and beer, and it's surprisingly delicious!"


    9. Sorbet + Vodka

    "Any type of sorbet in a martini glass with vodka. One of my favorites was a lemon sorbet with little pieces of lemon zest — the sorbet melts and blends with the vodka sooooo well. I had these in Paris a lot."


    10. Whipped Cream Vodka + Orange Soda + Sprite = "The Dreamsicle"

    11. Vodka + Grapefruit Juice + Splash of Sprite

    12. Tequila + Strawberry Fanta,

    HEB, Drizzly

    Seriously so addicting. It's like key lime pie in a glass.


    52. Hard Cider + Fireball


    My fave is definitely the Angry Ball. It’s Angry Orchard (hard cider) mixed with a shot of Fireball. It’s cinnamon apple and what dreams are made of.


    53. Tequila + Squirt


    That's how I make my palomas, along with a squeeze of lemon and a squeeze of lime. An underrated alternative to margaritas.
