Tabasco Hangover Cure

Tabasco brand pepper sauce has been your morning-after savior for over 140 years. This year, the brand is making it official as a sponsor of the Hangover Part II Premiere Party. Zach Galifianakis has admitted that even he is shocked by some of the content of The Hangover 2. The comedian is currently filming the sequel to director Todd Phillips’ hit comedy, about a group of men whose stag party in Las Vegas goes terribly wrong after they party too hard.

Zach said: “I think what’s good with Todd Phillips is he keeps surprising and shocking the audience. We’re doing the Hangover 2 and it’s SO embarrassing. It’s good, but I can’t believe what we’re filming. It’s crazy.”

This Thursday, partygoers will be treated to an array of Tabasco Bloody Mary-inspired cocktails, as well as a take-home cure-in-a-cup – containing tomato juice, lime and Tabasco sauce – for the morning after.

The Varnish Bartender Chris BostickIf you can’t make it past the red ropes, try your own version of the Thai One On cocktail, being served at the party, from LA’s own Chris Bostick of The Varnish. He is a tad old fashioned and prefers Bartender to mixologist. He thinks of mixology as more the method, education, technique and panache. He’s just your friendly Barman, well versed in the ways of the vintage as well as the modern cocktail. Currently behind the stick at The Varnish in downtown Los Angeles, where mixology and the search for the perfect cocktail are unending. He is passionate about all aspects of cocktail culture. With a simple credo of honoring each ingredient and bending over backward to achieve balance, the thoughts behind his cocktails remain adventurous, thorough, and professional. As well as being a humble Barman, he takes a chef’s and craftsman approach behind the bar by being seasonally driven, ingredient focused, and precise. He loves long walks through the local farmers market for inspiration. Whether it be the days freshest lemon basil or the seasons ripest heirloom tomatoes, he sees cocktails in everything.
