We’ve been cruel here at Hair of the Dog. We’ve offered up so many decorous libations with nary a hair of the dog in sight. It’s like we’re forgetting our own name. So in the spirit of curing what ails you (and knowing you’ll be a little sloppy when stepping into work post Labor Day), we present the ultimate Hair of the Dog: a brunch smoothie.
1 waffle, preferably deep fried, preferably from Brown Sugar Kitchen
2 pieces of fried chicken, deboned, preferably cold leftovers from Miss Ollies
2 tablespoons pure Vermont maple syrup, grade B (duh)
2 eggs (free range organic), scrambled in 2 tablespoons butter or bacon grease
2 slices bacon, preferably from Fatted Calf or the Local Butcher
1 can Campbell’s tomato juice or Bloody Mary Mix
1 1/2 ounces vodka
1. Travel around the East Bay and San Francisco to assemble ingredients. Wear sunglasses and a hoodie as necessary.
2. Come home. Take a nap.
3. Dump all ingredients into a blender. Hopefully you have a Vitamix. Blend.
4. Slurp with a straw and try not to vomit.
