This list of champagne cocktails, you can be sure to wow all your company with a menu of delicious drinks they can enjoy all night.

This is another simple but beautiful cocktail. All it requires is some orange sorbet, champagne and an orange to garnish.

To The Girl Who Doesn't Party In College

They are rare, I know.

I know what you all are thinking, she is just writing the article to brag on herself or to show the world the kind of person she is. No, I am writing this article to the girl out there who feels as if she is alone.

Not being a part of the party season is not the most popular thing to do on a college campus. Most people spend their days thinking about what they will do at night. Life pretty much revolves around the next party. But for people like me, it isn't spent thinking about alcohol or the next party I'm going to attend. And that can get pretty lonely.

It is not like I sit and wallow in my sadness or ever feel like my friends leave me out because I don't drink. I have great friends that support every decision I make. But, some are not that lucky. Some girls don't have the support system like me and I am here to tell you to never compromise the person you want to be just because you don't fit in. If you don't want to party, don't give in just because your friends are pressuring you into. Not to sound cliche, but find new friends because they are not your real ones. Choosing to stay true to you will pay off in the end, and you won't regret it. I promise.

I don't know why you choose to not attend the party scene, but I would be hindering my calling if I didn't tell you why I don't. I know this guy, and his name is Jesus. He is my best friend and the person I talk to about everything. It is because of Him that I decided to not party, to set an example for the people around me. But, I am also not 21. So I don't think, by any means, that me having a margarita when I turn 21 is hurting my reputation or my testimony. I firmly believe that alcohol isn't a sin when consumed in the right ways. I also don't ever see myself as a partier, 21 or not. Partying is a way of conforming and a way of becoming what this fallen world deems acceptable.

So to the girl who fails to be the typical college partier, I commend you. I look up to you. I respect you. I want you to know how rare you are. You choosing to not party and rise above the college standard is something you will never regret. I don't believe that my college years are boring because of the way I decide to live my life. I wish that I could befriend each and every girl relating to this article. So, when those Friday nights get boring, remember that you are not alone. You are rising above the standard.

10 Absolute Struggles Every Bartender Has Encountered On The Job

The keg blew again, be right back.


For my bartenders out there, every shift is unique in and of itself. I love bartending and I think it's the best job, especially considering all the amazing regular customers I get the pleasure to talk to. There are, however, several struggles I run into on a regular shift. I've had a long weekend of work and decided this article is warranted.

Here are only 10 struggles every bartender has encountered during a shift.

1. The poor tippers

You know them, the customers who demand the most but give you the least in return for your impeccable service. Even with a smile on their face the entire time, it's still never enough to receive anything over a 15% tip, if we are lucky.

2. Blowing the keg 

It'll be the busiest of hours at the bar, pouring a beer and boom - keg blows and explodes all over me. Let me go change that, be back in 5 minutes.

3. Cleaning the bar sink

At the end of a long work shift, assorted fruits and straws are stuck in the drain. Guess who gets the pleasure of cleaning it? The bartenders!

4. Random fights in the middle of a rush 

One guy is too drunk, says something rude to another drunk guy and the rest is history. The bartenders have to scrape them out of the bar and return to work.

5. Expecting us to have eight limbs 

I will carry out all the food I'm humanly able to and there's always a customer asking where the rest of the order is. I just got here with the as much of the order I could carry, be right back with the rest!

6. The drinker's check confusion

I enjoy going out to the bars just as any other college student. Sometimes people drink too much and get angry when they believe they drank less than their rather large bill suggests. As the sober bartender, I assure you the bill is a correct statement of the beverages you've consumers.

7. Questioning pours on a tall mixed beverage

Typically, a tall mixed beverage adds more of the soda/juiced used. A tall drink isn't a double shot of the liquor in the beverage unless specified.

8. Accidentally leaving self-created tab names 

Sometimes it's easier to label a tab "bald man" until you forget to change it when he asks for the bill. Always super awkward.

9. Running out of glasses

It makes me so incredibly sad.

10. Breaking a glass in the ice drain

Nothing is worse than this! For the safety of us all, draining the sinks of all ice and thoroughly clean it takes time. This also holds us up while working. I have a tendency to drop glasses so I try extra hard to be conscious and careful.
