Hair of the Dog

Everybody needs a little bit of the hair of the dog on New Year’s Day. Tradition dictates that we enjoy a mimosa or a bellini, but if you had too many of last night’s cocktail you probably want nothing to do with champagne. That’s okay, though, because here’s a little something for you that ought to go down easy and still pack a punch.

What you’ll need:
2 oz gin
2 1/2 oz club soda
1 1/2 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 oz grapefruit soda
1/4 tsp sriracha
Egg white
Lemon wedge

In a cocktail shaker, combine ice with the gin, lemon juice, sriracha, and an egg white. Shake well and strain into a highball glass. Top off with the sodas and garnish with a lemon wedge.
