If you've got 10 minutes: Make (and drink) a low-alcohol cocktail.
Generally, drinking less alcohol is a good idea. Here's the recipe for a spiked ginger ale (also known as a Dry Vermouth Buck):
“We’re all searching for a low-ABV long drink that we can sit back and drink all day. At Sacred, we make a “Dry Vermouth Buck” (ginger ale, a shot of vermouth and a little lemon juice served over ice) that ticks all those boxes, and isn’t too sweet.
“You can use any good dry vermouth in your ginger ale, but our Sacred English Dry is heavy on thyme, which really compliments the ginger notes, and it contains no sugar for a wonderfully tart finish. If you’re making up a jug at home, serve with a sprig of mint and a slice of lemon.”
