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’ve said it before but 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 let’s be clear. I think I have had 3 hangovers since I had my son 8 years ago. And that was 3 too many in my opinion. Hangovers and children do NOT mix. Not that I am looking to up the amount I drink but I have started looking in to various hangover helpers. I mean, it can’t hurt, right?
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 so it kind of kills two birds with one stone.
So before a night out on the town you are supposed to take 1 TBSP of honey mixed in to 2/3 cup milk. Pretty easy.
And after the party (and after the hotel lobby) you are supposed to mix 2 TBSP of honey with the juice of one lemon in 2/3 cup water. This doesn’t sound awful. And it is all natural. I have not tried this yet to tell you if it works or not. But I will update this when I do try it out. I wanted to make sure to post this prior to Cinco de Mayo in case any of YOU want to give this a shot as I know you will all be indulging in many margaritas that day.
Have you ever heard of this hangover remedy before? We also use honey to help with my kid’s coughs. What do you use honey for?
*I was sent a bottle of Golden Blossom Honey for this post but no further compensation. I just really wanted to share this hangover remedy with you all because I care about you and your hangovers.
