You’re out with some cute ladies for brunch and the last thing you want to do is kill your manhood by ordering a Mimosa. Worry no more. On my recent quest to find the Mile Square’s best brunches, some Hobokenites helped me discover a drink that instantly redeemed myself. Some men say they’ve even seen their chest hair growing immediately right after drinking. Well, not really. But the drink is called the Manmosas and its pretty damn good.
