KANSAS CITY, Mo., Dec. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- How about an Obamacare Happy Hour? Just a few days ago, President Obama urged creativity in touting the new health law and suggested holding a happy hour to discuss and encourage people to sign up.  An excuse for a gathering of friends for a happy hour is always a good idea, no matter if political leanings are on the red side of the aisle or the blue.

Feature drinks with a blue or red theme, and keep the food healthy with these recipes from "12 Happy Hours," the newest book in the Thirsty Jane series by J.K. O'Hanlon, available from Amazon as a soft-back or ebook. More recipes can be found at Thirsty Jane and on Thirsty Jane's Facebook page.
