Still Hangover? Try These 4 Wakie-Wakie Drink Recipes

When you reach for the ibuprofen and antacids, but they just won’t do the trick, it’s time to take a different approach. A hangover is an ailment that seems impossible to cure, especially when you’re attempting to stifle a pounding headache, settle your stomach, and push memories of last night’s tequila shots into the distant past.

Experts agree that the only true cure for a hangover is to drink alcohol in moderation. However, that’s not what you want to hear on a painful Sunday morning after a big night out. These four hangover drink recipes will help you kick your symptoms to the curb, so you can stop telling all of your friends that you’re, “Never drinking again.”

Ginger Tea

    Coffee will further dehydrate you after a long night out, so reach for a warm tea instead. Ginger tea offers anti-inflammatory and anti-nausea properties that can help ease your lightheadedness and upset stomach.

    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 1 tablespoon honey

    1. Grate the fresh ginger or slice it as thinly as possible. If slicing, use an additional tablespoon.
    2. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Stir in the ginger and remove the hot water from the heat.
    3. Let the tea steep for 10 minutes, then strain the ginger. Stir in the lemon juice and honey before serving.

      The Michelada is a hangover cure straight from Mexico. It’s similar to a Bloody Mary, but the Michelada allows beer to substitute for vodka. If you need a hair-of-the-dog cocktail to cure what ails you, this spicy cocktail will help you get back on the horse.

      2. Fill the glass with ice.
      3. Pour the Clamato, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce, lime juice and Maggi Seasoning into the pint glass. Stir thoroughly.
      4. Pour the can of beer into the glass to taste, then garnish it with a lime wedge.

        Experts suggest that alcohol only temporarily relieves the symptoms of a hangover, so it’s best to stick with non-alcoholic drinks for more long-term effects. This matcha coconut water provides electrolytes and salt to help you rehydrate and a touch of caffeine to cure your headache.

          30 Brilliant Camping Hacks I Wish I Knew Earlier

          30 Brilliant Camping Hacks I Wish I Knew Earlier

          Ah, camping. The great outdoors, the campfires, the food you’d never eat in civilised society: it’s a wonderful experience.

          That said, things can get a little bit tricky when we are left to the mercy of Mother Nature. Here are 30 fantastic camping hacks you can use to make your camping experience as wonderful as possible!

           1. Use sage to repel mosquitoes.

            photoshelter.com

            Place some sage in your campfire and the smell is sure to ward off any pesky mosquitos.

            2. Liquid soap + cotton balls = no ticks.

              crateandbarrel.com

              If you or one of your fellow campers is having trouble with a tick, place the soap-soaked cotton on the tick for 20 seconds. The tick will eventually stop chewing and will come away with the cotton ball. If the tick was attached for a lengthy amount of time you may want to consider keeping it in a container so that you can test it for Lyme disease later.

              3. Use an acorn cap as a whistle if you get lost.
