But the Chinese variety - baijiu, literally "white wine" - is far less known.

5 Reasons My First Attempt at Quitting Drinking Failed
5 Reasons My First Attempt at Quitting Drinking Failed On January 1st, 2016, I decided my New Year’s resolution was going to be to quit drinking. Nothing bad happened the night before. I just found myself drinking more than I normally did (being it was NYE) and noticing that it wasn’t really adding to the experience. If anything, actually, it took away from it.

But a sloshy morning and a gloomy mood call for something effective. Effective like Bloody Mary.
