Best Hangover Cures: Current Staff Edition

Posted By on Sat, Aug 24, 2013 at 10:47 AM

As wide-eyed college students pour into dorms and area apartments this weekend with their John Belushi College posters, backpacks and what not, we hope they keep in mind that hangovers are no joke. As professional drinkers (well, some of us), we thought we'd share our favorite hangover cures. Here are a few of our go-t0 snacks and drinks after a night of one too many glasses of wine, tequila shots and whiskey-filled cocktails:

Normally a shot of whiskey and on to a bloody mary and then eat whatever will make me go back to sleep. Bean & Cheese with Bacon and Avocado or Chilequiles Taco with Bacon. To avoid heartburn Pancakes all the way with Country Sausage and Egg Scram. But that's only when I have a hangover:) – John Mata

In no particular order: advil, water, coffee, pizza, naptime. If brunching, get a bloody. - Isis Madrid
