5 Hangover Cures For Minnesotans Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day
St. Paddy's Day is this Sunday, and gallons upon gallons of green beer will be pouring all across Southern Minnesota. But it's obviously not ideal when a Top 3 Drinking Holiday takes place on a Sunday. Many people will be going into work on Monday feeling like a leprechaun is operating a jackhammer inside their forehead. But not YOU! Because I'm about to offer up some hangover cures that will *hopefully* make your Monday not suck.
Well, at least not more than your typical Monday.
Here we go!
Whether it’s dill or sweet, chug away. It doesn't sound like the best, but it can help that upset stomach settle down.
Look, before you judge me, I can guarantee that this actually works. This was a trick I learned from an old girlfriend back in the day. Midol is basically Ibuprofen + Caffeine, which are two things that can really help you get over that pounding headache. Obviously, as with any medication, you want to be careful, read the label, and use it sparingly. But when I tried it, my hangover was completely gone within 20 minutes. I do start crying whenever I hear Adele, but it's a fair trade-off.
Don’t Drink Crappy Alcohol
This probably goes without saying, but sometimes you really do get what you pay for. If you like rum, avoid Ron Diaz like the plague. PBR? BE CAREFUL. You don’t have to go super expensive, but don’t order from the shelf that’s literally inches away from the floor, either.
Had I known about this miracle drink, I probably would have gotten two weeks of my life back during college. It is INCREDIBLE. It’s honestly not a bad idea to chug a bottle of this in the middle of the night while keeping an extra one for the morning. Since hangovers are caused by dehydration, you’ll feel like a champ in no time. “Pedialyte: Not Just For Babies!” This is my #1 suggestion.
...Or Just Don’t Drink A Lot
This one is clearly the most optional choice on the list. Drink responsibly. And definitely don't drive.
