Chambang: the exquisitely delicious hangover cure
One exceptionally groggy morning, some of my friends elected to work off an unreasonably persistent hangover with some brunch inspired drinks and a day at the beach. This day would change the course of our very existence. In potluck style, individuals were designated ingredients. The first guest arrived, champagne: check. The second, orange juice: fail.
He did, however, manage to navigate the hectic morning bustle of a local Mexican food joint. Among the items in his possession: a California burrito and a large Orange Bang. An abrupt, simultaneous realization overwhelmed our collective consciousness. We should have known by the mischievous twinkle in his eye, Reid was way ahead of us. The Chambang was born.
- 1 Pint Glass, preferably chilled
- 8 oz Orange Bang Whipped Fruit Juice
- 8 oz Champagne, Cook's Brut suggested
Step One: chill your pint glass
Just place a pint glass in the freezer and wait. This amplifies the scrumptious factor of the beverage you are about to consume. You should consider doing this the night before, realizing the deteriorated state your cogitative abilities will be in when morning arrives. Take a moment to appreciate the agonizing state of hangover, your existence is about to improve significantly.
Step Two: add champagne
Fill your pint glass halfway with your choice of champagne. We typically use Cooks Brut, but feel free to experiment with other delicious varieties. Although this step offers negligible nutritional value, it is crucial in resupplying your body with the inebriating elements that the preceding night has conditioned it to crave. Optional: formulate some sort of rationalizing statement about tapering off.
Step Three: add Orange Bang
Fill the rest of the glass with Orange Bang. Bask yourself in the magnificence of your creation. This step makes the beverage an officially sanctioned morning drink. Sure, you can just have champagne in the morning, but this way your actions are surprisingly more socially acceptable. Plus, the deliciousness is heightened exponentially with the addition of Orange Bang. Add a few ice cubes if you see fit, and enjoy.
Repeat as Needed
Your first sip of Chambang will likely be an astonishing experience. Take time to revel in the vast complexities of it's exuberant lusciousness. Allow the myriad subsequent realizations and emotions to coalesce into an important truth: you are now content. Banish the distresses of throbbing headaches, cold sweats, perhaps even the shakes, and commit to an enjoyable day.
If a full 16 oz of unadulterated euphoria are not enough to shake loose your intolerable state of agony, feel free to reapply. A previously unattainable level of bliss awaits you.
