In this special Parents’ Weekend cocktail, we’re gonna mix two stereotypical post-work liquors to form a weird hybrid Mom-n-Pop disaster. After all, the two most important things in life are family and getting totally shitfaced, am I right?

You’re gonna need a few things:

  • White wine. Make it sparkle if you just got some extra cash.
  • Whiskey. What kind? I don’t know. Ask a dad.
  • Orange juice.
  • The ability to make believe you’re a really busy parent who just got home from the office.

To make the magic happen:

  • Add equal parts wine and whiskey to a coffee mug. Forget the fancy glass; you’ve been putting out fires at work all day, and you need to relax.
  • Splash a little bit of orange juice all up in that business. Mutter, “There. Now it’s heart healthy, too,” under your breath.
  • Collapse into bed and drink while watching your favorite reality TV show.
  • Repeat the next day. And the next. And the next.
