Greatest. Hangover. Cure. Ever.

A tall bloody mary (for the alcoholic)...

Burnt toast and bananas (for the foodie)...

Copious amounts of Tylenol (for the druggie)...

A Sunday run (for the crazy)...

...And for everyone else - Emergen-C packets.


If I wake up in the morning feeling terrible and I can manage to peel myself off the couch, I wander straight(ishly) to the kitchen and make one of my all-time favorite hangover cures (aside from dating a nurse with an IV saline supply).  Each of the three ingredients is crucial...do not forget one...
  • 2 Emergen-C Packets
  • Water
  • 2-3 Ice Cubes
1 Emergen-C packet isn't enough - You will need the concentration of electrolytes and vitamins, so two packets are a must.  The Emergen-C provides the boost, the sugar, and that ever so slight carbonation.  Water, not too much, maybe 8 ounces - You will struggle with drinking any more.  Two or three cubes of ice - You will want the drink cold as possible to combat your alcohol sweats.

Combine all three ingredients, stir, drink, maybe a Tylenol or two, then pass out for another hour.  Magic.
