Cocktail Week wraps tonight at 5 p.m., but it's sure to inspire more than a few hangovers. With this in mind Eater reached out to the cocktail mavens at Southwest's Our/Detroit for a go-to hangover cure. The cocktail recipe is a play on the inexplicably popular lemon, maple syrup, cayenne pepper, and water detox diet — only this time with booze — says distillery manager JeanMarie Moorish. "[It's] just acknowledging that when you're hungover, you need to get a little booze back in your system but still being healthy and detoxing." Moorish says the distillery developed it for Eater, but decided to start offering it on the weekends beginning in late October. In the meantime, test your mixology skills at home with the official recipe:
