A stout and coffee cocktail is being touted as the drink with the magic ingredients that will see you into the New Year and out the other side. 

Whether you are hungover from New Year's Eve or yet to go out, this drink works both ways.  The LAist suggests mixing oatmeal stout, quality cold brew coffee, and ice.  It's simple, it's easy, it's cheap, it's effective. 

It says:  "What's important here is that you get good cold brew coffee and add about a quarter cup of it to each 12 oz. bottle of beer.  Pour that over some ice in a pint glass.  Crack open an oatmeal stout, pour, stir, sip, and be amazed."

For those that may overdo the stout and coffee cocktails, a motor club is offering New Year's revellers a tow home for to stop them drink driving.

AAA, a motor club and leisure travel organization serving North America, is offering to tow nonmembers cars home from 6pm this evening until 6am tomorrow.

Drivers, potential passengers, party hosts, bartenders, and restaurant managers are told  to call an advertised number to get a free tow home up to ten miles.

The Santa Cruz Sentinal reports that partygoers should tell the AAA operator, "I need a Tipsy Tow," and a truck will be on its way.

Tipsy Tow's Facebook campaign states, "No excuses, folks.  Don’t drink and drive-and don’t ride with anybody who does.  Tipsy Tow offered by AAA:  You don’t have to be a AAA member; from 6PM-6AM on New Year’s Eve/Day, they will take your drunk self and your car home for FREE.  Save this number…1-800-222-4357.  Please re-post this if you don’t mind."

The service will provide a one-way ride for the driver and vehicle to the driver's home.  If there are additional passengers who need a ride, they will be taken to the driver's home as long is there is sufficient room for them to be transported safely in the tow truck. 

The service is not available in every state and drivers are instructed to check before calling.
