Rough weekend? We hear you. There’s a tiny part of us that’s glad the World Cup is over and the celebratory boozing can finally end. Well, after one more drink: the Salty Dog, a citrusy cocktail that’ll cure what ails you.

Grapefruit juice and a hearty glug of vodka are the base of this hair-of-the-dog libation. A thickly salted rim cranks the volume up just a decibel more.

The elixir provides the little bump you need to get back into the swing of things, without clobbering you with booze. After this, you can go back to your regularly scheduled kale salads and green smoothies. Promise.
