On those cold chilly days when it's raining and you need some warmth, nothing does it like a shot of schnapps. And if you're traditional, you know that your new car or new house has not been properly launched until your dad blesses it with prayers and some splashes of schnapps. Whatever you do, be sure to drink responsibly. Don't drink and drive, arrive alive. And if you're going out with friends, you should have a designated driver. Pace yourself as you drink in order to prevent a hangover.
