While drinking in the morning may raise eyebrows if it's a regular habit, it's a pleasant way to crank up the occasional festive brunch or pursue a low-level "hair of the dog" hangover remedy. So without further ado, here are four ways to wake up with a kick in your glass.

#1: Wake up the palate


First thing in the morning, it can be nice to taste something with some invigorating heat and depth. The Classic Bloody Mary is probably the best way to get 'er done – by combining the zip of tomato, the funk of Worcestershire, and the neutral bite of vodka, it guarantees an eye-opening first sip of the day experience.

#2: Complement classic breakfast foods


Whether you're a sweet or savory breakfast person, there's no dish that orange juice can't skillfully accompany. And a Sunrise Mimosa is a great way to bring a cleverly cocktail-ized version of OJ to your brunch table.

#3: Freshen up


A minty cocktail might not be the first go-to for a breakfast eye-opener, but the refreshing herbal kick of mint (combined, perhaps with another fruit as in the Melon Mint Julep Slush) is a great post-party wakeup taste.

#4: Coffee... plus!


Booze-boosted coffee is best enjoyed in moderation -- alcohol and caffeine are powerful enough alone, let alone combined. But a single coffee cooler-style drink (such as Iced Mexican Coffee can be an excellent way to enjoy java with a kick, particularly during a summer brunch on the patio.
