The unavoidable downside to an evening spent enjoying your favorite cocktails is the dreaded hangover the following day. One would think that in this day and age, someone would have developed the technology to counteract nausea, lethargy, and nagging headaches. Sadly not.
Ben Reed—bestselling author and seasoned bartender (and drinker)—is here to help. Hangover Cures explains why we get a hangover, the best way to avoid them and, if all else fails, recipes to help alleviate the pain. Try a Corpse Reviver or a Bloody Mary to take the edge off your hangover, or, for a healthier option, replace lost nutrients with a juice drink such as the restorative Liver Recovery. With cures from around the world, reviving recipes and expert advice, Hangover Cures will help ease the suffering of the morning after the night before.
