Picture this: you’ve just woken up to a brand new year. The birds are singing, the winter air is crisp, there are 366 days of possibilities ahead of you, and you feel like you’ve been hit by an F-150.
It’s not an ideal start to the new year, new you—but that’s the price of drinking alcohol served in flutes. Lucky for you, we’ve got a tried-and-true remedy that’ll perk up even the worst morning-after. All you’ll need is a bottle of Garrison Brothers and a few ingredients you might already have on hand. Without further ado, here’s hair of the dog, 3 ways:
