Sarah Michelle Gellar, the ever-youthful The Crazy Ones star, turned 37 on Monday and celebrated over the weekend with a pair of colorful drinks. (We’re not sure exactly what cocktails they were, but we can dream they were named The Spike and The Angel.)

To mark the occasion, let’s look back at the most memorable moments from Gellar’s most iconic role, the superstar Slayer Buffy Summers on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Fighting a revamped (get it?) Angel

Going toe-to-toe with Faith

Losing her mom

Sacrificing herself to save Dawn

Getting her feelings out through song

Sharing her powers
