Alcoholic drinks that help your hangover

I always think it's adorable when people tell you the best way to avoid a hangover is not to drink or some such nonsense.

We all know the hair of the dog is the real cure here.

Calwineries.com has been kind enough to post plenty of cocktails for that morning after hangover that will help you rise to the occasion of another day of drinking. Particularly useful on Memorial Day or 4th of July weekends, or at your best friend's wedding and your best friend happens to be the girl you're in love with. Hellllooooo John Hughes.

It's divided up in two sections:

  • Clear Alcohols with Water Based Mixers -- Clear alcohols (Vodka, Gin, Light Rum, etc.) have less hangover causing Congeners, and water based mixers will lessen dehydration
  • Drinks that Contain Vitamin B6: Bananas contain Vitamin B6 and B12, which are known to help reduce hangovers. Bananas are also high in Potassium, which is depleted from alcohol consumption
So, stop it with the gallons of water the second you wake up, hell, your body doesn't absorb most of that anyway. Try a Killer KoolAid (the cranberry juice helps to balance fluids) or a Frozen Strawberry Banana Colada (The Jamba Juice of the alcohol crowd).

I've found that sprawling out on a cold bathroom floor and assuming that death is finally here is the best way to deal with a hangover.
