Country music is the lifeblood of Whiskey Riff, and we pride ourselves on standing firmly in the corner of the independent artists, and those few in the mainstream still doing it the right way. Whether it’s Waylon, Willie and legends of the past, or superstars in the making like Zach Bryan, our finger is always on the pulse of true country music. From Texas to Tennessee, Appalachia to Bakersfield, Whiskey Riff is THE unapologetic voice of the country music fan.
A RIFF on what makes the great outdoors…great.
“Country” is more than just a steel guitar. It’s a lifestyle. A mindset. A cold beer, hot grill and the great outdoors. A lifestyle so perfectly captured by the country greats of yesterday, but still alive and well today in artists who truly get it.
Whiskey Riff is that lifestyle.
Say goodbye to boredom.
The best playlists in country music…period.
On ‘Whiskey Riff Raff,’ Steve Gazibara and Wes Langeler give an unfiltered and unapologetic take on country music, life, and all the craziness that comes with it. Laugh with us. Rant with us. Drink with us.
I think it’s safe to say that the legendary George Strait has had a hangover or two in his day.
Currently, he is the part owner of an amazing tequila brand called Código Tequila, and although he doesn’t party like he used to, he doesn’t mind having a stiff drink every now and then.
So what’s his go-to hangover cure…
No, not the music of Menudo, the Puerto Rican boy band from the ’80s, but rather the popular Mexican tripe soup. In case you didn’t know, tripe is actually stomach.
According to an interview with the DailyBeast, George let everybody in on his go-to hangover cure saying:
“Yeah. There is one and it’s called menudo. It’s tripe soup. It’s very, very tasty.
When I happen to have the occasional hangover, which I try not to, if I can get some menudo that’s what I get.”
Looks pretty damn good, eh?
So there ya have it…
It’s New Year’s Day… you’re over-tired, under-hydrated, your liver is working overtime, and you need something to snap you out of it? Down a bowl of Mexican cow stomach soup.
Maybe a hair of the dog shot of tequila, and that’ll set you “Strait.”
Cue up the Código.
