After a long day at the office, one of the best ways to boost your spirits is by making happy hour plans with your friends. Happy hour — if you’re 21 or over — is such a treat, because it allows you to break free from your cubicle and chat about anything other than work with your friends. (And let's be honest: Who can pass up a deal on $5 margaritas?) For this joyous occasion, you'll need some drinking captions for Instagram and all your happy hour plans.

As more places are opening back up, you and your coworkers can hopefully have a chance to go back to your usual spots, or try out a new place with seriously Insta-worthy cocktails. You could even plan a virtual happy hour if you’re still working from home. No matter the plans, you know for sure a selfie or two will be snapped along with some drink pics. With no more meetings or calendar invites to deal with for the rest of the day, your squad will be smiling from ear to ear. Pair your favorite photos together with any of these 45 drinking captions. You've already done so much work today, so let these ready-to-use captions can help you out by making the posting process easier. That way, you can get back to having fun, because happy hour doesn’t last forever, and you should enjoy every minute of it.
