Wide World of Hangover Cures

Now that we’ve encouraged you to celebrate Cinco de Mayo on a Monday, you may need a little hair of the dog tomorrow morning. But why stick to the traditional mimosa or bloody mary when you can go international? These might not be your typical drinks of choice first thing in the a.m., but if a whole country swears by it, they must be doing something right.

 

 

Mexico‘s go-to hair of the dog is a michelada, a frosty mug of beer typically spiked with tomatoe juice, worcestershire sauce, lime and a kick of spicy heat.

 

In Mongolia, hangover relief is in the eye of the beholder–if you happen to hang out with livestock. Pop a pickled sheep’s eyeball in some tomato juice, swirl and gulp. Whatever you do, don’t chew!

 

Waking up wrecked in Poland can make you quite the sourpuss: Among the most trusted local hangover cures is pickle juice. Straight up.

 

Have we changed your mind about going loco tonight? We hope not!
