At one time or another, we’ve all had one too many. It seemed like the right thing to do at the time…it’s the next morning — when we can barely lift our heads off the pillow because they feel like they’re being pounded incessantly by little people with hammers — that we vow to never drink again. But we all know we will. Recently, I came across an interesting “cure” for hangover hell: pickle juice. Apparently full of natural antioxidants, healing salts and minerals, it’s been used for centuries for its medicinal properties. So give it a try before your next night out and let me know how it works!
Instructions on preparing the pickle shot:
1. Before you begin drinking, fill a shot glass with dill pickle juice.
2. Choose the proper “chaser” to this pickle concoction. The chaser should be something to drink immediately after to rid your mouth of the cure’s nasty taste.
Chaser Recommendations: warm water, ice water, OJ, or whatever you prefer.
3. Have two aspirin lined up, pickle juice shot ready, and your chaser.
4. In a quick and precise manner, place the two aspirin in your mouth, and swallow them with the pickle shot followed by the chaser.
This pickle shot is recommended before you consume your first beverage in order to prevent the onset of a hangover the next morning. Should you not have access to pickle juice prior to drinking, then first thing in the AM go to the grocery store, purchase, and follow the same instructions as above.
