The holidays may be "over", but the cheer doesn't have to stop. Just think of the many reasons to celebrate:
You finished a massive project at work...WIN!
You started a massive project at work...soon to be WIN!
You thought about starting a massive project at work...think about the future WIN!
You don't have a massive project at work...DOUBLE WIN!
Whatever your reason to celebrate, you deserve to treat yourself to a Holiday Manhattan tonight!
One sip and the holiday spirit will come rushing back!
