5 Cocktails To Cure A Hangover

Hair of the dog never tasted so good

You should have said no to that third bottle of Prosecco, and the tequila shots at 2am were definitely a bad idea. Now you've got the fear, some hazy memories of texting your ex and a stolen traffic cone in your room. To top it all off, it tastes like something died in your mouth overnight and that someone has been playing ping-pong with your skull. Well, we can't rid you of your humiliation, but we reckon we know how to shift that headache... time for some hair of the dog that bit ya.

Cold Brew Curer

This more than drinkable cocktail offers the ultimate morning-after serve by combining two key ingredients we always rely on for a hangover cure: caffeine and electrolytes (we're talking salt, FYI). Bottleshot’s signature Cold Brew Coffee Black gives ya that much needed caffeine kick, while Tan Dowr Sea Salt Vodka brings the salt for a cocktail that should wash away the hangover fear.

The Original Pick-Me-Up

This is the closest version to The Original Pick-Me-Up made famous by and served up in the Dr Harris & Co. shop at 29 St. James’s Street. A kick-ass boost when you need it most, which, lets face it, is usually the morning-after-the-night-before. The blend of botanicals and all-natural ingredients has been specifically designed to settle the stomach, stimulate the appetite and invigorate. This is the legit morning after reviver, baby. Just what the doctor ordered.

The "Ultimate" Hangover Cure by Dr Henderson

Fernet Branca is pretty much the official unofficial drink of bartenders around the world. Its herbal punch of flavour and its ability to settle the stomach after an over-indulgent sesh thanks to its 40 herbal ingredients (including myrrh, rhubarb, chamomile, cardamom and saffron) means it also a miracle worker for a hangover, too. This "ultimate" cure was originally created by Dr Henderson, the father of world-famous chef Fergus Henderson who believes in this remedy so much that he's actually patented it. Definitely worth a try in your darkest hours... just don't be put off by the swampy colour of it. Image courtesy of St John Bread & Wine.

Long Shot Cosmopolitan

Hydration, hydration, hydration. That's the answer to a hangover. Along with a little bit of vodka, obviously. This Cosmo incorporates a splash of Long Shot hard seltzer sweetened with the fruitiness of raspberry and blackcurrant. That's one delicious way of getting water into your body when you need it most.

Coco Colada

When it comes to natural hangover cures, coconut water has your back. It's got some hella high concentrations of electrolytes, fibre, vitamins, and minerals, along with plenty of potassium and natural sugars that instantly hydrate the body. Yeah, you could drink it how it comes, but we like it when mixed into this lighter Piña Colada for a double dose of coconut with Aluna Coconut Rum.
