Hangover Cure
If you overindulged during the holiday season – I'm talking food and drink here – and you want to settle your stomach if there's a dinner invitation you can't turn down, do what the Europeans do. Take some bitters. Fernet-Branca and Unicum are available at the LCBO in 500 mL format for just over $20 but if you have that once-a-year hangover, try Underberg, a German bitters that comes in a single 60 mL serving at $5.85. It taste like medicine but, believe me, it does the trick. Just hold your nose and knock it back. That's Underberg bitters in the small paper-wrapped bottle. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($5.85, LCBO #214809)

Peninsula Ridge Inox Chardonnay 2008
Here's a bargain-priced unoaked Chardonnay from Ontario. The French for stainless steel is "Inox" and that's what Peninsula Ridge calls its unoaked Chardonnay. The 2008 Inox Chardonnay is straw coloured with a nose of minerals and apples; it's medium-bodied and round on the palate with dry, apple and pineapple flavours and a warm alcoholic finish. It costs $12.75 a bottle. Try it with a white fish like tilapia or Caesar salad. That's Peninsula Ridge Inox Chardonnay 2008 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($12.75, LCBO #594200)
