When life hands you lemons, make a cocktail! Have you ever been on that hopeful job interview, acting job or promotion thinking you just have to get it because you match all the qualifications? Then you get hit with the news, you didn’t get the job with no good reason and you could almost drive yourself crazy trying to figure out what you said or didn’t say? Well I say, at this point, have a drink called, Don’t be discouraged! It’s a refreshing drink that won’t fix the problem but will at least nurse the pain.
Don’t be discouraged cocktail
2 oz. bourbon
1 oz. medium (gold) rum
1/4 orange Curacao
1/2 oz simple syrup
