Cocktails that will cure your hangover

After a heavy night, the last thing you’ll likely want to do is drink more alcohol. It’s scientifically proven though (probably), that doing so is the easiest way to rid a hangover. If you go down this route you won’t want something reminiscent of the night before, however. Instead, something a little different or unusual should help you forget that pounding headache. Here are 3 cocktails that will cure your hangover.


cocktail - TGJ.02

The go-to hangover cocktail, the Bloody Mary has been a loyal pick-me-up for decades. It’s hearty, spicy bite is an acquired taste, but you can hardly taste the alcohol provided the measures are correct, meaning it shouldn’t be overlooked.

The ingredients: 60 ml vodka, 120 ml tomato juice, 2 drops of tabasco, 2 drops Worcestershire sauce, 1 pinch salt, 1 pinch ground, black pepper, 1 pinch smoked paprika, 2 lime wedges, 1 lemon wedge, 1 celery stick


cocktail - TGJ.01

The name kind of gives this one away. Inspired by the very thing which gave birth to its existence, this easy-to-drink, sweet-yet-satisfying concoction is well worth a try.

The ingredients: 120 ml whisky, 60 ml honey, 60 ml cream


cocktail - TGJ.03

When mixing or choosing your own cocktail on a hangover, you’ll want simplicity, and you just can’t beat a good old vodka and orange juice. Ensure that the juice is fresh, giving you that vitamin C boost that you need.

The ingredients: 60 ml vodka, 120 ml orange juice
