A Bay Area distillery has created a vodka mixed with fog. And in South Korea, there's now special hangover ice cream. It uses fruit from the Japanese raisin tree, long used as a hangover cure.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. A Bay Area distillery has created a vodka mixed with fog. Using a giant mesh catcher, they say, they managed to bottle San Francisco's fog. Those with brains foggy after trying it could turn to another centuries-old ingredient, raisin tree fruit juice. In South Korea, which has Asia's biggest drinkers, it's long been a hangover cure.

Now it's available as an ice cream bar, whose name translates to hang in there. It's MORNING EDITION.
