This Thanksgiving is sure to be tough, with Uncle Charlie having at old Aunt Margaret for her political views, and your cousin Cindy casting side-eyes at your still-single status. How's a girl to get through an entire day of thorny "are you seeing anyone special?" questions without losing her cool? Alcohol, of course, or at least a tasty mocktail to take the edge off, just a little, until the last slice of pumpkin pie is gone and the coat closet is finally empty.
