5 Hangover Cures {Link Up}

6.19.2013
as you know, this weekend tara is coming into town and we're hosting tour de franzia at my apartment.  which means we're going to party in wrigleyville friday night when she gets here and then proceed to drink boxed wine for 7 hours on saturday, followed by seeing our friends' band band play at navy pier.


so here's something that's going to be absolutely necessary come sunday - my go to hangover cures.

coffee.  i absolutely need caffeine when i'm hungover, it's the only thing that stops my headaches.  if i truly can't crawl out of bed, i'll take a migraine pill, which has caffeine in it, but i prefer to just drink the black stuff if i can.  iced is especially wonderful, because you can hold the cold cup to your head between sips.

pedialyte.  not just for kids with tummy troubles, my friends!  pedialyte is amazing, replacing electrolytes and everything better than gatorade.  they sell it walgreens in a couple flavors.  they also have it in juice box form and it taste like apple juice.  they even have it, in my personal favorite form, as popsicles!!  like the old school flavor ice popsicle sticks in the clear packages that cut the corners of your mouth.  however you try it, you'll never look back.  it's magical, like just a step short of getting a banana bag at a hospital (which was fun in college, til your insurance runs out.)

chinese fried rice or other hangover food.  tara's go to is the fried rice, she swears by it.  i like anything salty and kind of greasy, like diner food.  eggs and toast usually works for me.  or mexican food.

pickles.  i don't want to say that snookie is on to something but really, pickles are awesome for hangovers.  if i eat them the night before, i find that my hangover is less severe, and if i eat them in the morning, it goes away quicker.


sleep.  i wake up at 7:30 every day, even hungover.  it's not fun.  so i drink pedialyte and take a migraine pill and eat some pickles, and crawl back into bed by 9.  usually with sunglasses on.  i try my hardest to sleep off the rest of the hangover.

what are your tried and true hangover tips?!  cause we are going to need them come sunday.

  1. Reading your blog makes me miss drinking... haha I haven't 'really' had alcohol since April and probably won't drink anything again until September/October (because I'm trying to lose weight). But reading your blog just makes me sad (in a good way).

    I swear I am right there with you - in spirit (obviously). Also, I'm still jealous of tour de franzia... please have a terrible time so that I'm not completely jealous on Monday (okay, I'm kidding.. kind of).

    Seriously though, this is an awesome list that I'm going to pass on to all of my friends. Don't hate me, but I don't get hangovers. The only time I've ever had a hangover was when I drank a 40 of vodka by myself in 15 minutes (don't ask), and I was drunk for about 15+ hours... not good times.

  2. Pedialyte is the best!!!! But what's a banana bag?

  3. I need to start trying some of these. Usually when I'm hungover, I stay in bed all day and am too sick to even move. So I don't drink water or eat... probs not smart.

  4. I can't wait for the giveaway! I'm definitely going to try this out...I usually just stay in bed forever.

  6. I rarely ever have a hangover. For every shot I drink I drink at least a half a glass of water. I have Greg trained if we are drinking out or at home, he always brings my shot with a bottle of water. On the rare occasions that I do have a hangover, I swear by a glass of OJ and my weight in bacon. Mmmmmm Bacon. I don't think there is anything it can't cure.

  7. I'm kinda with holly, I don't really get hangovers, I drink a lot of water and make sure to eat. But if I am feeling worn out the next morning an egg and cheese sandwich does it (followed by coffee). I actually heard somewhere that there is a chemical in eggs that actually helps the hangover, I guess that's why my body craves them?

  8. This has made me laugh and I can truly relate!! When I was in Miami there was these guys outside the club selling boiled hog head souse (only us Southerners know about souse) in a cup and it prevents you from having a hangover. It totally worked!!

  9. My surefire hangover cure is a fountain Coke from McDonald's. Not sure why it has to be Coke or McDonald's specifically, but it's the only thing that's ever worked for me.

  11. Haha. OMG This is perfect!! I am trying the Pedialyte. I have heard it a thousand time but never really believed it. lol. And my hangover cure...of course...is more alcohol!!! Hair of the dog always seems to work for me!!

  12. Your pedialyte is a good tip.

    I take Target tension headache before bed with a full glass of water, and two more when I wake up with another full glass. Fountain soda or iced coffee, berries or watermelon, and more sleep.

  13. McDonald's fountain Coke and a cheeseburger will always be my go-to hangover cure!

  15. I am sure you are going to have a fantastic time with Tour De Franzia!!

    My hangover cure is always Sprite or 7Up and McDonalds breakfast. I am the same way I get up super early even if I only got in like 2-3 hours before and then I eat and crawl back to bed to try and sleep it off. I must try this pickle thing!

    This giveaway is awesome and that wine bottle chiller that looks like a paper bag is the best ever! Ok...thats enough now.

  16. my hangover cure was always a giant glass of water and advil before bed, then a greasy bfast (eggs, toast, bacon, bread) in the morning followed by crawling back into bed for a few more hours.

  17. I get the WORST hangovers! I have never tried some of these! They are on my list for this Saturday night and Sunday morning. I will try anything!!

  18. I don't really get hangovers, the worst for me is just being tired. but I know when I'm getting bad and do shots of water from a sink.. saves me every time. like Melissa said, hers are horrible, I'm going to force feed her pickles this weekend! hahah

  19. A juicy, greasy burger always makes me feel better! Also, 2 advil BEFORE bed seems to help

    1. Although I should mention I haven't had a hangover in like 5 years...so I don't know what that says about me...

  20. I swear by gardettos snack mix, diet coke, and turkey sandwiches for my hangover cure. I mix in about ten showers and lots of trashy tv. If it gets real bad I make my boyfriend put cool rags over my eyes..that shit feels good. I would agree with the chinese fried rice, but I pretty much just want to eat that all the time so I can't say it is specific to a hangover for me.

  21. I ALWAYS wake up at the ass crack of dawn after drinking and I hate that. Like shouldn't that shit knock me out? And greasy food works every single time... if you can stomach eating that is. PS I need this giveaway. SOOOO pick me? KTHANKSBYE

  24. I love how you know exactly what works. I don't have a fool proof plan except take some tylenol/advil/ibeuprofen before bed. Have tons of fun this weekend! Oh and I was enterting the giveaway and spelled my own name wrong on some of the entries. Go me!!!

  25. Best hangover cure I've found...a big bottle of Vitamin Water Revive before bed. Another one of those and some Pringles (preferably BBQ or Cheese) and you're good to go. My BFF and I don't go anywhere without them. It was a main staple (besides the booze) in our Vegas hotel room last year!

  26. My insta hangover cure is McDonalds breakfast, a bloody mary, and a shower. Then I feel like a million bucks for a couple hours till the hair of the dog wears off lol.

  27. My hangovers last all day, but I have it down to a science: in the morning I drink life back into myself with a Naked Smoothie (usually the Green Machine) and I have some form of carbs, usually a bagel. For lunch Chipotle is my savior. If I can't get Chipotle it's a sad day, but I try to have something with avocado in it. Then if I'm still hungover I like a pasta for dinner. Totally weird, but it works and helps me feel human again!

    If it's a weekend and if I have time, I wake up early, take a Tylenol PM and sleep until noon haha! That's the best!

  30. Pedialyte is my personal favorite...is it bad that it gets added to my grocery list at least once a month to have "on hand" "just in case"
