Happy weekend! Welcome back to the Happy Hour Cafe!  While we prepare to de-stress from the week, and get the weekend crazy going. It is time to prepare for the two days of downtime, and mentally prepare for the coming week. No matter what you have going on, take some YOU time. Personal time is extremely important. Not only does your body begin to recover a little, but mentally, you can recharge those internal batteries.

With Jack Daniels, you can never go wrong! Anything with Jack Daniels makes whatever you are doing better. Since we celebrated the 4th earlier this week, there is nothing that I want more this weekend than a little more down time, and some fun. We are planning on doing as little as possible, but plans always change at the drop of a hat, so preparing for fun wherever we are goes a long way!

This drink is perfect for those backyard hangouts and fire pit sitting. Get your weekend going strong with Jack Daniel’s VIEUX CARRE, and leave your cares behind this weekend! Jump over to your Class Six on your way home and grab these ingredients to make one delicious drink!  Drink happy, drink safe! Have a Jack Daniel’s fabulous weekend, and SMILE!
