It's volunteering season...ugh. But you no longer have to grin and bear it--thanks to a little-known cocktail, Elderflower Collins. Don't freak if the sexy bartender is clueless. Single or not, this is also a flirty way to get him to get your number, as you explain exactly what's in the clear cocktail.
A Sharpie isn't the only requirement to be a good volunteer. You need to dress for the occasion, which means wearing something effortlessly put-together. Basically, you need to look like you couldn't give a damn without actually saying it.
