Hangover cure

So as the weekend finally started, its time to blow off some steam, get drunk, and party hard and not even trying to think of consequences.As for me, I've spend my friday not planning on drinking, but I still managed to get pretty much shitfaced, damn you jegermaister, damn you.
As for now, I'm dealing with a massive hangover, and will post some random hangover cures for those who suffer as well.

. Take 2 aspirins
2. Take 200mg cysteine (available at specialty food stores)
3. Take 600mg vitamin C
4. Take 1 tablet vitamin B-complex
5. Mix the following ingredients together in a blender:
  • 1 banana
  • 1 small can V-8
  • 6 large strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1-2 cups milk (or soy milk), to desired consistency
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • dash of nutmeg
6. Drink it all up.
If necessary, follow up with a dose of Maalox, lots of Gatorade, and bouillon soup for dinner. These ingredients will rehydrate your body, replace essential vitamins and minerals, and help rid your body of some of the toxic byproducts of metabolized alcohol.
For a headache that drugs don't seem to touch, try an icepack or a bag of frozen peas wrapped in a tea towel, 20 minutes on your head, 10 minutes off. There've been lots of hangover remedies over the centuries, from the Assyrian crushed swallows' beaks with myrrh to Rabbit Dropping Tea (though we think that it tastes a little raisin-y). Friends of ours have suggested everything from club soda to the classic Bull's Eye (OJ and a raw egg) to pickle brine straight from the pickle jar. But if you're looking for something substantial that actually prevents vomiting, invest in the necessary pills and keep your blender handy; the Almighty Hangover Emergency Cure, judiciously combined with the wise drinking practices detailed above, is for you.


  1. i follow you every day,,nice posts..:))

  2. It doesn't look very delicious .. but I'll try it :)

  3. Have you thoroughly tested this recipe, and is it safe? Yes, I am very skeptical of these hangover cures.

  4. sounds like good advice. I not much of a drinker so I wouldn't know the first thing about hangovers....other than the movie.

  5. WHat?!?! That sounds nasty. If it works for you, great. I'll stick to darkness and "hair of the dog" :D

  6. I don't drink but I know a ton of people who could use this lol

  7. If I decide to drink one day, I'll try this :P

  8. i always end up cracking another beer (or whatever i was drinking the night before)

  9. Just drink a lot of whater and get an ibuprofen before going to bed. If you still wakeup hangover, you're simply lacking some water and vitamins. Get some and wait one or two hours and you should be alright!

  10. You cure a hangover with a shot of vodka :)
