The Story:

What's the worst part about drinking too much?  No, it's not starting a fight or flashing your goodies for total strangers to see, it's called a hangover.  The pounding headache, bubble guts and nausea you receive after a night of mindless drinking far outweigh the shame you feel for acting inappropriately.  People claim to have all kinds of remedies to aid a hangover.  However, from experience, I can tell you the only thing that works is to drink more alcohol in the form of a bloody Mary, red beer or if you're like me, dessert wine!

The Pairing:

Since your body is going through alcohol withdrawal, give it what it needs, more vino!  While your blood is receiving the new alcohol, it ignores the old.  The 2009 Alois Kracher Cuvee Auslese from Burgenland, Austria is perfect for nursing a nasty hangover.  Kracher is famous for making some of the most delicious sweet wines in the world. Since dessert wine is consumed in small quantities, you'll be giving your body just enough alcohol to keep your headache at bay. Secondly, it tastes great!  The wine is a blend of 70% Welchriesling and 30% Chardonnay.  Its full of ripe peaches, pineapple, a hint of grapefruit, spice and a touch of minerality marked by refreshing acidity and a lush texture.  The final reason you should choose the 2009 Alois Kracher Cuvee Auslese to offset a hangover is because the wine is sweet, helping to give you a boost of energy for those moments you need to get from the couch to the fridge.  Cheers to a speedy recovery!
