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.


SVEDKA’s Screaming Banshee
St. Patrick’s day may have passed, but the spirit of the holiday can live on (for better or worse) as long as you’d like. SVEDKA‘s Screaming Banshee is an easy-to-make cocktail that starts, as most good things do, with vodka.



  • 2 parts SVEDKA Vodka
  • 3/4 part fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 part simple syrup
  • Cucumber slices and basil

Muddle cucumber and basil in a cocktail shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and shake vigorously. Afterward, fine strain into a chilled Martini glass and garnish lavishly with cucumber.
