We all know the FEAR. And there’s no better confirmation of a messy night out than waking up to severe dehydration, a swirling tummy and a banging headache. Now, we aren’t medical professionals but these are our personal go-to ways to cure a hangover. Your liver will thank you.
A Hot Chicken Roll
Forget the full Irish. It’s all about the hot chicken roll the morning after an epic night on the town. It will seem like the ultimate battle to get your hands on one. But hanging around sheepishly at the end of the deli queue for your chosen sandwich artist will be worth it in the end. Washed down with an ice-cold can of Coca Cola plus a duvet day watching trashy TV is sheer perfection.
The awkward moment you wake up and bats fly out of your parched mouth. There’s many a day where we crawled tenderly to the kitchen sink and gulped back a glass of water like our lives depended on it. Rumour has it if you drink two pints of the good stuff before hopping into bed in the wee hours, it will ultimately help keep a hangover at bay. We won’t argue with that.
Every Irish mammy loves the trusted Vitamin C tablets. A glass of the bubbly wonder will help restore your depleted vitamin levels, helping you on the road to recovery in no time.
The quickest way to get some much-needed potassium into your system after a night of bashing your vital organs. Bananas are gentle on the stomach and will provide your body with necessary electrolytes lost from a night on the town.
Hair of the Dog
If ya can’t beat em, join em. A pint it is then.
You’d be surprised what a stroll on a crisp morning can do for the mind. Even better if you live by the sea and can inhale some salty freshness into your lungs.
You could always abstain from drinking on the night of your hen bash. But where’s the fun in that?
