Because odds are you're probably going to be out partying to help placate the awkwardness inherent in explaining to your high school ex why you quit law school to open Dave & Buster's franchises, we procured a list of four non-traditional recovery cocktails from SF's finest drink-slingers to help ease that pain.
Zero Zero's Joel Teitelbaum: Hard Root Beer Float
The HRBF's served in an ice-less high ball and foundation-ed with their in-house vanilla soft serve, then topped with rum, an apertif, Hank's Root Beer, and Root liquor, which is the perfect stomach-soother when Things Fall Apart.
Skool's Linda Stiles: The Cure
This aptly-named menu-orderable remedy (only available at brunch) is served in a shot glass, but instead of the jello shots you took the night before (baller!), this one is filled with a simple combination of honey water and ginger, which is actually quite revitalizing, despite doing nothing for your soul.
Grand Cafe's Gregory Nasser: The Man Drink
Popular in Jamaica (like Sean Paul!), TMD's served alongside a fried plantain and made with a vitamin-rich chilled puree of carrot, fresh squeezed OJ, a half pint of Guinness, a raw egg, and a tablespoon of sugar "off the cane", also a catchphrase at old folks' homes meaning cool, or happening.
Hog & Rocks' Eric Rubin: Sangrita
H&R's off-menu version of the traditional tequila Mexi-chaser is made with a mix of tomato, orange, lime, and grapefruit juice that he'll spice up with hot sauce, fresh jalapeno, and salt 'n pepper, but only if you push it real good.
