I am not a huge fan of calorie-laden, creamy drinks in the winter. Nothing is worse than a hangover plus a few extra pounds (because, as you all know, you MUST stick with the same drink all night – switching just makes matters worse). Also, those hangover remedies every news site and blog had? Bosh. Drink less, drink water in between alcoholic drinks and the two surefire cures for a hangover are….drumroll….pickle juice and bacon. Something to do with the sodium and nitrates. Seriously! Don’t take that Advil – it will rip up your liver.
I digress. The Snowball is classic, fun, flirty, but manly enough for a boy. Enjoy!
- 2 oz brandy (or even Armagnac or Cognac would work)
- 1 oz simple syrup (if you don’t feel like making simple syrup, Trader Joe’s has a great one bottled!)
- 1 egg (very fresh, organic)
- ginger ale (I use authentic, organic Whole Foods ginger ale, but Canada Dry is great, too)
