Hangover Cure for the New Year

Cures for hangovers are common recipes on January 1st. Here's one sure to help based just on nutrition and hopefully, a body that can recover quickly from alcohol poisoning.

When you wake up, the head aches because you are dehydrated and you've lost nutrients essential for your body. Avoiding caeffine helps, too... and replacing potassium. Eat a banana!

Here's a quick fix for all you party animals that just had to drink themselves to oblivion.

SLEEP: best cure folks; sleep it off
FRUIT JUICE and lots of WATER: you're dehydrated
BLOODY MARY: it has alcohol, but lots of goodies too (the hair that bit you)

1 1/2 oz vodka
3 oz tomato juice
1 dash lemon juice
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 - 3 drops Tabasco® sauce
1 lime wedge
1 rib of celery

Shake ingredients (except lime wedge) with ice and strain over ice cubes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the wedge of lime, celery and serve.

Ok, now, go back to sleep until Wednesday. Use this cure anytime you're going on a river trip and you did a bit too much the night before.
