Hair of the dog?
I believe it to an extent. I think if you are hung over enough, one beer or one cocktail or a glass of wine would help. I work on Sundays and serve a lot of bloody Marys all day long. It's pretty much the drink people think of in terms of hair of the dog.
Hot drinks for the cold weather?
We do a lot of coffee drinks with either Bailey's or Jameson. I recommend butterscotch schnapps with hot chocolate. Here we make hot apple cider with applejack brandy or apple pie liquor, and we garnish this with an orange wedge and a cinnamon stick.
Are people easing up on the partying after the holidays? Is drinking less one of people's resolutions?
Spending less might be one of people's resolutions but not drinking less. People are downgrading their alcohol choices.
Tell me about your single malt scotch collection.
We have Glenlivet, Macallan, Glenfidich and Laphroaig. These go through phases. We do have our customers who love their scotch. People tend to drink it straight up during the winter and on ice in the summer.
