Today's Wise Words: How to Cure a Hangover

Posted by The Wine Whore |


"My favorite way to cure a hangover is to sop up the alcohol with some fluffy pancakes and then wash it all down with some sweet mimosas."

Ugh - it's making me sick just thinking about it, but it's true but maybe not so much syrup and skip the bacon.

The Wine Whore said...

LOL! Me too!

The syrup I could live without or maybe at least not as much but bacon? Now that's a hangover necessity! :)

What's the worst hangover you've ever had?

Cheers!

A good breakfast meal after a hangover is always desired, anything from eggs to pancakes. And yes, there should be bacon! A mimosa or bloody mary is also a good accompaniement.

It is always good too to have a nice breakfast after a night of drinking, but before you are sober and hungover.

Eggs Benedict and a bloddy mary works good for me. fgj1013

Ugh - the last time I got super smashed was New Years Eve 2004. I was getting out of a long relationship and had the hots for another girl (who ended up becoming my wife) - I had to spend the whole night watching her but not being able to be with her (complicated) - I drank so much and combined so many types of alcohol - got sick and felt dead for probably 2 full days.

I'm older and only slightly smarter now

C'mon - You have to have syrup... it's part of the package, extra syrup in fact. The syrup provides the sugar rush which aids in making you feel much better the 'morning after.'

My families tried and true method is crack open another beer. Doesn't say much for my genes at times but I've come to terms with that. I'd give you mine, but I don't think I've ever had an honest to goodness hangover.

A Bloody Mary is my hangover drink of preference!

The worst hangover I ever had was just a few years ago, drinking in a bar in Yonkers, NY. It was the first hangover that caused me to be sick all day, and I mean SICK! Never again!

The Wine Whore said...

Holy crap, Nectar... 2 days! That's one hell of a legendary hangover! I'm very impressed! :)

I could totally see how a chick could drive you to drink... happens to the best of us! At least things ended while, despite being green from drinking!

As long as there is no powdered sugar Frank, I'm happy! Something about that stuff drives me nuts... it's like fingernails on a chalkboard!

Psycosis, a wise (and often drunk) man once told me, the best way to cure a hangover is to keep drinking... it delays it another day! Is it even possible to be hung over if you are constantly drunk... I smell an experiment coming on! :)

I was waiting (and hoping) someone would mention a Bloody Mary... good call Cestbeth! Any hangover that lasts an entire day, is totally uncool!

I always hate when I go to bed without drinking any water and then wake up in the middle of the night/early morning still drunk and SICK. The worst is that line where you really wish you would have thrown up and gotten it out of your system, but you don't want to make yourself do it. I've had this last all day and it just makes me wish I was dead....

Moral of the story: If you are REALLY drunk and about to get sick, either puke or stay up drinking water until it happens!

This conversation got a little weird, didn't it!? :)
Cheers!

I find now that I mostly only drink wine, I'm rarely hungover. Oh.. and I dip my bacon in syrup...

The Wine Whore said...

Wait?! Did you just say that you dip your bacon in syrup?! That's freakin' brilliant!

I'm almost tempted to binge drink JUST to try it! Ah, well who am I kidding, I would probably end up drinking too much either way! :)

Richard Auffrey said...

One of my Halloween parties caused several people to be sick for a few days. I concocted a drink called "Witch's Brew" which was extremely potent, though it did not taste it. Though everyone was warned to restrain themselves, plenty over did it, guzzling the potent brew. They paid for it by lengthy and unpleasant sickness.

The Wine Whore said...

That drink sounds more potent than that Dugger dude whose wife gave birth to like 3 million babies. Ok, I exaggerate... but now I've gotta know, how does one go about concocting this mighty, magical brew?

Richard Auffrey said...

I am not sure I should post the recipe, and likely cause much more drunken sickness in the world. It can be a very dangerous weapon. :)

The Wine Whore said...

Damnit! I was hoping I could use these as my secret weapon! :(

Oh well, the world is probably MUCH better off!

Can I at least get a hint? :)

Richard Auffrey said...

I'll give you a few hints.

1. It is made from only 4 ingredients.
2. Only one ingredient is alcohol.
3. The key is the special preparation.

Anonymous said...

Best solution to a hangover is prevention. Try taking an antihistimine prior to drinking red wine. Often the headache is an allergic reaction.

The Wine Whore said...

Ok, so if you won't tell me what's in it, can you at least shed some light on the "special preparation"? :)


I've never tried that! Does that really work?! Anyone ever try taking an antihistamine before drinking? Maybe it just makes you pass out sooner!

Richard Auffrey said...

Well, the special preparation is the big secret so I can't reveal that.

But I will tell you that one of the igredients is water.

The Wine Whore said...

Dammit! :)

I wonder if I can find it on the internet... hmm, let's see if the 'ol Google machine can help!

Richard Auffrey said...

Probably not, as Witch's Brew is not its original name. :)

The Wine Whore said...

Yep, no luck!

Google has let me down :(

Richard Auffrey said...

Ingredient #1: Water
Ingredient #2: Everclear (190 proof alcohol)
Ingredient #3: ?
Ingredient #4: ?

Preparation: ?

The Wine Whore said...

AHA! I suspected that Everclear was behind this recipe!

We used to make "Jungle Juice" for all of the UM football games. Perfect tailgate treat... combine a trashcan lined with a garbage bag (100% sanitary, I swear!) Fill with liberal amounts of everclear, cut fruit, fruit punch, orange juice, and whatever the heck else you've got laying around... then enjoy in the sweltering Miami heat as you watch the 'Canes kick butt! Let me just say, it made for some pretty crazy fun! That is, as long as you didn't pass out before you got a chance to enjoy it! :)

Is you Witch's Brew prepared in a garbage can?

Cheers!

Richard Auffrey said...

Nope, we used a plastic cauldron. Any bucket though would make do.

The Wine Whore said...

I'm getting close, I can feel it! :)

Richard Auffrey said...

Let me give you more help then. :)

Ingredient #1: Water
Ingredient #2: Everclear (190 proof alcohol)
Ingredient #3: Frozen lemonade concentrate
Ingredient #4: Frozen lemonade concentrate

Preparation: ?

The Wine Whore said...

Oh, now we're getting REALLY close!

Does the preparation involve sacrificing three virgins? :)

Richard Auffrey said...

Do you have three extra virgins hanging around?

The Wine Whore said...

But of course! :)

I wish! My wife would kill me!

... I bet there's a Tiger Woods joke in there somewhere! Any takers?

Rachel said...

Antihistamines before drinking wine? Are you looking to induce a coma?

The Wine Whore said...

LOL! I was wondering about that... seems like it might work: take a handful of Sudafed, one glass of wine, and then pass out! Yep, no hangover there! :)

In all seriousness, I want to try this... but then again, I don't really get bad red wine headaches.

Anyone else ever try it?
