National Hangover Day

Happy New Year! You made it to National Hangover Day. I was feeling quite ambitious a few days ago and signed up for a spin class the morning after New Years Eve. I felt great during class. It wasn't until about 30 minutes after class that I began to gag (thank you sake, vodka, and beer). I solved this problem the best way I know how, with a Michelada. If you haven't had a Michelada before, I highly recommend swapping your Bloody Mary out for one. I can get down with a Bloody Mary, but sometimes vodka just doesn't go down as easily as I would've hoped. Micheladas are made using beer instead of vodka. I topped mine with bacon and I already feel better.  I also like to serve my cocktails with a side of sass. To add some sass you your next party, visit the etsy shop for custom drink stirrers. See the recipe below.
