Alchemy Hangover Cure Cocktail

Just when you thought this inspiration crafted by Brooke Keegan  and Marisa Holmes (seen here + here) was over, we are topping it off with a recipe for a hangover cure from Alchemy San Diego. This lighter take on the classic bloody mary brings a little cucumber into the mix. And while it’s technically a “hair of the dog” kind of recuperation, it would also be great with brunch, or all by its lonesome.

Dapper Gentleman and Ladies take note! Theme parties are not just for girly girls. This 30th birthday bash is centered around scotch and cigars and a really good cake. What’s not to love? It’s masculine, polished and all crafted by Ashley Lindzon Events. Check out the full gallery photographed by Tara McMullen for even more, including a late night ice cream truck cameo.

From Ashley Lindzon Events… Planning Daniel’s birthday party was too much fun! The theme was based on his favorite things; scotch, cigars and sweets! To celebrate, guests were gathered together to enjoy an evening a fun festivities including a scotch and cigar bar with customized matches, cigars and some classic scotch and whiskey. We also served old fashions as the guest of honor’s signature drink – and they were delish!

To nibble, we offered mini grilled cheese sandwiches, pulled brisket sliders and mini chicken and waffles.The desserts included a masculine wood engraved cake with copper antlers, mini glazed donuts, salted caramel cheesecakes, mousse shooters and chocolate cupcakes with chocolate whiskey icing (to stay on theme). And as a late night surprise an ice cream truck came to serve guests icy treats.
