After sampling our fun holiday drinks, I thought it might be appropriate to include a few of our Staff’s holiday hangover recipes as well. So, here you go…You. Are. Welcome!.

Joyce’s Bloody Hangover Cure

  • Tomato Juice (my choice is V-8)
  • Tabasco sauce
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Asparagus, celery, olives as desired
  • A splash of real lemon juice

These vitamin-packed healthy ingredients can do the trick. Tomato juice has a high concentration of the antioxidant lycopene, which helps to fight the toxins in your liver, sent there from the binge the night before. Lycopene has also been shown to improve brain function by monitoring genes that reduce inflammation and stimulate brain growth. Tomato juice isn’t the only healthy thing about this common “cure,” Worcestershire sauce, which combines anchovies, molasses, garlic, cloves, and chili pepper, is rich in Vitamin B6, which helps our bodies fight infection and aids in digestion. Due to a high content of niacin, or Vitamin B3, in anchovies, Worcestershire sauce actually helps our body break down carbohydrates and fats into energy. Yay!

Another ingredient in a Bloody Mary with hangover-expelling health benefits is lemon juice, which is essential to soothing your digestive tract and acting as a natural laxative. When alcohol enters your body, the digestive system immediately wants to get it out to try to minimize the amount absorbed directly into the bloodstream. But when your body prioritizes the digestion of alcohol, it puts other foods and nutrients on the digestive back-burner, which leaves you feeling constipated and bloated in the morning.

All in all, a virgin Bloody Mary (hold the insane garnish) has about 40 calories, 9 grams of sugar, and 10 grams of carbohydrates. That's less than a mimosa or even a nonfat iced coffee, and when you consider the added digestive and immune system benefits of a Bloody Mary, it is really worth a try to cure your next holiday hangover. And hey, if nothing else, it can’t hurt, right?

Laura’s Hangover Cure

  • Plenty of rest
  • Stay hydrated with an electrolyte drink (coconut water, Pedialyte, or Gatorade)
  • Oh, and don’t forget your greasy breakfast the next day!

As a little reminder, check out our recent Holiday Bar Cart blog to get some ideas on where you might like to spend your winnings.
