Chris Bostick Causes and Cures Your Hangover With One Simple Drink


On Monday, we gave you recipes for over 21 colorful cocktails that we’re enjoying around town. We imagine that no one’s probably made all 21 just yet, but today, Chris Bostick of The Varnish offers us another, this one a bit of a take on the Michelada that uses green jalapeno Tabasco and spiced salt that the bartender debuted last night at the after-party for The Hangover II’s Hollywood premier. Called The Morning Medicine, it sounds like it can both give you a hangover and possibly help alleviate one. Take a look at Bostick’s full Morning Medicine recipe below.
