Summer time and living’s easy! Unless you’re being questioned about a traumatic sexual assault. Luckily, there are refreshing and light cocktails in season, which you can throw back when police, detectives, doctors, friends, and acquaintances ask you, “Well, what were you drinking that night?”
It’s watermelon season, which means one thing: if someone asks you what you were drinking when you were traumatically and callously assaulted, thus implying that you are partially or solely responsible for those events, you can mix up a way-too-strong pitcher of watermelon margaritas! Nothing doesn’t quite ease the sting of being victim-blamed like a cool, summery cocktail!
After hours of trying to explain that what you drank has no bearing on the fact that you were assaulted, you’ll naturally want to lighten the mood. And what’s lighter than white sangria? The fruit is an added bonus because you really haven’t had much of an appetite since you realized that you were somehow the one on trial here.
Whiskey Lemonade With Honey
Well, whiskey anything, really! In the midst of being questioned about what you did wrong, you’ll really be thirsting for a stiff drink. Try this sweet lemonade cocktail while wondering why you’re the one being asked to modify your behavior, not the person who raped you!
