Drink of the Day After the Super Bowl: The Eye-Opener

Regardless of the outcome of tonight’s game, it’s likely that some of us will be running at less than top capacity tomorrow morning. We may spend the post-game time toasting with champagne or soothing our souls with bourbon straight, but either way we’ll be at least a little sorry in the morning.

In addition to pointing out some useful hangover-prevention tips you can use through the day and evening (the best of which is to drink lots and lots of water), I suggest you gather together the ingredients for the restorative drink below. Line them up neatly in the kitchen along with a shaker and whiskey sour glass. You might even premix everything except the egg — your hands might be a little too shaky for pouring in the early morning light. You’ll only need one of these, to take the edge off as they say. Then take some aspirin with a pint of cold water, find some dark sunglasses, and you’ll be ready to face the day.
