Join us in a toast! On today's episode of Distillations we're celebrating the holiday season with a couple of drinks—and a side of aspirin. First, producer Catherine Girardeau heads to St. George Spirits, a distillery in California, to find out how the most potent ingredients in our favorite cocktails are made. Then we check in the morning after to reveal what hangover cures actually work. (Hint: Not many.)
