5 boozy mixes to get your holiday spirits high after finals

Drink Responsibly

Now that finals are over, we can all head home and sleep… but don't let the party STOP! Even though we leave behind the crazy nights at DJ's, the silence of Bird Library, and the sliminess of our dorm showers, the Syracuse part carries on. Let us drink to forget our finals, our GPAs, and our scholarly responsibilities (until January).

Here are 5 Holiday Cocktails to help:
