And you thought you only needed one.

  1. You just landed a job in Manhattan! Here's your Big Apple Martini.
  2. You just finished spring cleaning! Cleanse your palate with a Dirty Martini.
  3. You just dropped 20 pounds! Now you can fit into a Bikini Martini.
  4. It's cold and rainy, and is that your house teetering on the edge of a cliff? Time for a Frozen Mudslide.
  5. First day of Spring? Celebrate with a Hummingbird.
  6. Your adorable little dog just scared off the mailman. Sounds like a Salty Chihuahua.
  7. Winter's ruining your perfect tan. Feel the burn with a Tanning Bed Drink.
  8. The cat just tore up your brand-new sofa. Kick back with a Madcat--why worry about spills anymore?
  9. You've been "eating right" all week and don't want to blow it. Reach for the veritable salad in a glass, the Bloody Mary.
  10. Your mother-in-law just showed up for an unannounced visit. Better make it a double. The Psycho.
