As true believers of the work hard, play hard mantra, we present you with It’s Been a Long Week, a weekly column aimed at awarding some liquid appreciation to you for just being yourself, dammit. Make a glass or two on us, you deserve it.

Refreshingly simple, Burrey’s Pear Madcap is a light concoction that will have you scrolling back up—or, even better, making a trip out west—for a refill.
