Hangover Cures

We all know the sensible thing to do is not to drink to the point of a hangover in the first place but let’s face it, it happens to us all at one point or another so how can you minimize the fallout? Below are a list of remedies and ancient wives tales which aim to cure.

We are in no way saying any of these are a excellent thought or that they are likely to work so take it all with a hefty pinch of salt and excellent humor and bear in mind we are a Glasgow Restaurant not doctors!

If you have an alternative ‘cure’ send us a comment via the form below and we’ll post the best and most original suggestions!

01. Hair of the Dog

In case you’d not heard of this cure it’s the thought that having an alcoholic drink the morning after will help ease the pain. This will only appear to cure your hangover as it introduces more alcohol into your system and effectively numbs you to the previous nights shenanigans, in truth, it only suspends the effects until your ‘hair of the dog‘ wears off and then hits you with a vengeance. If you are going to go down this route then it’s been claimed more than once that a Bloody Mary is the way to go..


1 1/2 oz vodka

3 oz tomato juice

1 dash lemon juice

1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

2 – 3 drops Tabasco® sauce

1 lime wedge


Shake all ingredients (except lime wedge) with ice and strain into an ancient-fashioned glass over ice cubes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the wedge of lime and serve.

02. Water

This is the only point thats tried and tested. The nature of alochol makes you visit the small girls/boys room more often therefore making you dehydrated, it also reduces the amount of potassium in your body which is what causes the dizzyness, cramps etc. When dehydrated the brain shrinks away from your skull slightly and is not as well supported hence the pounding headaches. Best you can do for yourself is rehydrate as much as possible.

03. Coffee, coffee, coffee

Hands up those of you who immediately reach for the coffee the morning after…thought as much! We all do it, but it’s possibly one of the worst drinks we could be having (if you ignore the hair of the dog) Coffee is a diuretic and therefore makes you pee more than normal, add that to the fact that you are already dehydrated from the night before and you’re just asking for the headache to last longer. As was said in point 2, you can’t beat a excellent pint of water, or at the very least wash your coffee down with a excellent drink of water!

04. Fry up

The sheer amount of calories in a fry up goes towards giving your body an energy boost to help you get through the day. And there are some claims that cysteine in eggs that helps clean up all the toxins. Only problem with a fry up is it smells incredible, looks fantastic but can you get past the first mouthful!

05. Sleep

You’ve place your body through alot and it has a honest amount of repairing to be getting on with. If you have the time and your pounding head will let you then try to get more sleep. This will let your body repair itself quicker without having to devote energy to general day to day functions such as moving!
