I’ve always been that person who absolutely MUST have a chaser to follow a shot of liquor. It makes no difference if it’s top shelf, root beer-flavored, or paired with a cute little lime wedge and a dollop of salt; a chaser is an absolute necessity. Soda, orange juice, V8 juice…I don’t care what it is, as long as it masks the taste of the alcohol.
After spending the week with a nasty head cold, I can say with certainty that the same applies to liquid cold medicine. I’ve always been more of a pill girl, but this time around I decided to give the syrup a try. Not only does the liquid require a chaser, but it also involves a lengthy pre-swallow pep talk and a post-chaser handful of cereal for good measure. It’s too bad the liquid works a million* times better than the pills do.
