Here’s the thing: certain days can be really hard to get through — we’re looking at you, Monday — while other days totally make life worth living. Either way, most of them are probably going to have a fair amount of hooch involved. Regardless of what kind of day it is or why you’re drinking, we’ve made a list for you of the perfect alcohol pairing for each day of the week. Let’s get to it!

Monday – Gin

Nothing like a stiff drink to start out the week. Mondays are arguably the hardest days, so you’re gonna need a booze as dry and bitter as you felt waking up early that morning. You’re already wearing a suit from your day in the office, you might as well go out feeling like 007 and get a martini “shaken, not stirred.”  

Tuesday – Tequila

Tuesday is the most forgettable day of the week. Rarely anything ever happens on a Tuesday. It’s far enough from the last weekend that you’ve forgotten all about it while simultaneously being able to forget how far away the next weekend still is. So, what’s a drink that’ll make you forget it’s even Tuesday? Anything with tequila. Like Dan + Shay, when we taste tequila, baby we still see…huh, we’ve forgotten what we’re supposed to see.

Wednesday – Wine

Class, elegance, and sophistication are the epitome of how you feel when you get together with the girls to “whine and wine” on Wednesday. By the middle of the week, you’re older and wiser than you were on Monday, so it only makes sense that you’d choose a more mature drink than your previously younger (by two days) self.

Thursday – Whiskey

Maybe you didn’t fight as hard to get to Friday as Winston Churchill fought to win WWII, but we bet you both share his excellent view of whiskey. He once said, “The water was not fit to drink. To make it palatable, we had to add whiskey. By diligent effort, I learned to like it.” Wise man! We value his glowing review, but let’s be real Winny, there’s no diligent effort or learning required. Whiskey is easy to love.

Friday – Rum

It’s no coincidence that rum rhymes with party! Okay, so maybe it doesn’t, but Friday is for parties and no party is complete without rum. After making it through another week of life, it’s time to make like Jack Sparrow and drink up all the rum before it’s gone.

Saturday – Beer

You know we’re gonna say it, “Saturday is for the boys!” Pull out your shades, snapback, and muscle tank because it’s time for some R&R, bro. Whether you’re chilling on your buddy’s couch or playing pool at your favorite sports bar, be sure to crack a cold one and start maxin’ your relaxin’.

Sunday – Vodka

After waking up hungover from Saturday, there are few things more enjoyable than a late brunch with pancakes, hash browns, eggs, avocados, and mimosas. Vodka is the name of the game when it comes to afternoon breakfast food, because what else could pair better with a headache? As the characters from You’re the Worst so accurately sing at their brunches: “Sunday, fun day, better than a Monday, can only do it one way, and that is the drunk way!”
