This cocktail will cure whatever ails you.  The chopped ginger and chile-infused vodka lends a spicy bite to this flavor packed cocktail.

King of Snake Cocktail
Makes 2
Recipe from Bon Appetit

1 1/3-inch slice peeled fresh ginger, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons (packed) golden brown sugar
2 cups ice cubes
1/4 cup vodka
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons chile-pepper flavored vodka (such as Absolut Peppar or Stolichnaya Pepper)
2 tablespoons Cointreau or other orange liqueur
Crushed ice
Muddle ginger and sugar in cocktail shaker until paste forms.  Add all remaining ingredients except crushed ice; cover and shake 15 seconds.  Fill 2  old-fashioned glasses with crushed ice.  Strain cocktail into glasses and serve.
Note: I could not resist using martini glasses (which I keep handy in my freezer).  However, I have enjoyed this cocktail in an old-fashioned glass with crushed ice which gives this drink a really fresh taste.
