The old saying "hair of the dog that bit you" is a common theory for curing a hangover. Most people choose a Bloody Mary, but the thick, red drink can be rather upsetting to look at, much less drink when you're in the midst of a hellacious hangover. The Hair of the Dog cocktail is a great alternative that serves the same purpose: a little bit of alcohol, sour citrus and the hot digestive aid to calm the stomach. Unless you have a Bloody Mary mix on hand, Hair of the Dog is easier to mix, an attribute you'll appreciate when your head is splitting and stomach is churning.
