Cocktail

In case you’ve been living under a rock, the 2016 Rio Olympics have officially begun as of last Friday. The games run from August 5th to the 21st, so that gives us plenty of time to sit back, relax, and drink while watching the greatest competition known to man. And while you may not be as in-shape and athletic as those competing, just think about all the alcohol and intoxicating fun they have had to give up while training. So, who’s the real winner here? Go ahead, pass that torch (martini glass) and take the gold in drinking. Let the games begin!
