A simple natural remedy for hangovers

You guys know I like a cocktail from time to time. But if I have too many (which is very hard for me to figure out) I get the WORST hangovers ever.

I can have 2 beers and feel terrible the next day and then the next month have 3 cocktails and be totally fine. It just doesn’t make sense to me. I’ve never been able to figure out what I should be drinking so that I don’t get terrible hangovers.

And once you have kids, it is even more important to not feel awful. Hangovers and children do NOT mix.

I had no idea that honey played a role in hangover remedies. What is so great is that you probably already have honey in your house and don’t need to go buy anything for this remedy.  

And honey makes a great cocktail ingredient (use it instead of simple syrup) so it kind of kills two birds with one stone.

Before drinking

Before you start drinking make sure that you do this step.

Mix 1 TBSP of honey into 2/3 cup milk.

Drink it. So easy. Then go about your business.

After Drinking

A bottle of honey on a white table next to a measuring spoon a lemon and a glass of water.

Do this next honey remedy after the party (and after the hotel lobby).

Mix 2 TBSP of honey with the juice of one lemon in 2/3 cup water.  

Drink it.

  1. I’ve actually never had a hangover….but I love honey!

  2. great tips! I have yet to have a hangover… but mainly because I don’t drink enough to get there. I wouldn’t be able to stand it! I’m totally going to do this honey thing though… just in case.

  3. I want to try this regardless of drinking or not because it sounds delish! I take a tsp of honey every morning for allergies so I’m a big honey fan. :)
