We’ve all been there. One too many the night before, and now we’re paying for it. Scientists believe hangovers are the result of acetaldehyde accumulation, changes in the immune system and glucose metabolism, dehydration, metabolic acidosis, disturbed prostaglandin synthesis and malnutrition. But if you’re currently experiencing a hangover, the last thing you want to hear is headache-inducing scientific jargon. You just want relief.
Right now Longwood Brew Pub is offering the perfect cure. Everyone loves a juicy Caesar the day after — a little hair of the dog — and with spring around the corner and seafood plentiful, oysters are in season and prime for the picking. So we’ve created a Caesar-inspired cocktail sauce with ketchup, horse radish, cracked pepper and lime juice. There’s also the customary celery stick and salt, ready for your shucking skills. Served with our fresh Vancouver Island oysters ready for maximum slurping capacity, its a great way to wash away those nasty symptoms. Called it an amped cocktail, perfect for spring, and perfect for helping to erase (some) of last night’s mistakes.
