February 14th is tomorrow and what better day to give you an excuse to be sweeter to those around you. If you're involved with someone, or many ones, take the opportunity to let them know how you feel. It doesn't have to be flowers, it doesn't have to be chocolate (if you're a monster), it doesn't have to be a big purchase day. Does he/she/they enjoy Kraft Mac and Cheese? Cook a huge bowl of it for them. Does he/she/they enjoy silence and book reading time? Let them know you see them, you appreciate them, and leave them alone.

What alcoholic beverage should I enjoy on my night to myself?
1. Yellow Tail Chardonnay
The website for Yellow Tail describes it best: "This Yellow Tail Chardonnay is everything a great wine should be – vibrant, flavorsome, fresh and easy to drink."
You're focused on other things, dates here and there but nothing is sticking. Don't worry, your time will come if you want it to. Just throw on a robe at the end of the day, start yourself a warm bath with your favorite smelly candles. While the water's getting ready, pour yourself a nice glass of chilled Yellow Tail Chardonnay. The sweet flavors will bring you back to glad moments of time past as well as fill you with an optimism for the rest of your year. It's only February, the best of 2019 is still ahead of you.
2. Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka
For the Southern individual who needs a spa day but who has the time? Just light some cafe lights on your patio, perhaps get a fire going. Grab a rocks glass, add some ice, and fill it with delicious Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka. Flavorful and smooth enough to drink straight, this will help you kick your boots up and feel soothed by the sounds of nature as the sun sets.
3. Bulleit Rye Whiskey
Your mother didn't raise a wimp, you want to have a drink and you want it to be a proper drink. The sweet and smokey flavor of this Bulleit Rye Whiskey coats your mouth and slowly descends down your throat but with just a little bite so the whiskey reminds you it's there. Let the haze of the evening take over and schedule a date with the GrubHub delivery dude. Suddenly you find yourself saying, "Oh, hello there, Ted Bundy documentary on Netflix... I'd love to watch you."
4. Jim Beam Bourbon Whiskey
It's been three months. She's not coming back. Sigh... just... just grab your plastic Atlanta Braves game cup and fill it with ice and then... who are we kidding? Unscrew the cap, take your car keys and rip that plastic spill guard out, you don't need a piece of plastic telling you to slow down, DAD. Grip your bottle of Jim Beam Bourbon Whiskey close to your heart and wince every time your lips meet the bitter burn of its contents. Make sure you take it easy, after one or two sips you can't taste or feel anymore and it's a dangerous and slippery slope.
5. Everclear Grain Alcohol
...What am I doing with my life?
