Any merry night before means a bleary morning after – team TNT susses out how to survive it
It’s hard to enjoy the Christmas period when you have a stonking headache and feel like you’re going to puke.
Don’t give up the mulled wine and brandy butter yet, though.
TNT has dutifully played crash test dummy to find out which hangover cures actually work.
Alasdair Morton: I sit down at Streatham’s Hideaway hoping to greasy spoon away the shakes and alco-sweats through some saturated salvation.
The bacon and sausage are great for restoring sugars and salts, but eggs alone are better as they contain cysteine, which breaks down alcohol. Eggs Benedict next time, I think.
Michael Gadd: Sometimes it’s right to fight fire with fire, or in this case, beer with beer.
After an epic bender, a midday pint of the most flavourless ale I could find on the way to the football – and a can on the train – did exactly the trick.
Downside – has the hangover been cured or just delayed?
Price: Approx £3.80 from any London pub.
Helen Elfer: The secret trick is to pop the painkillers before you go to bed.
You wake up in the morning pain-free, and avoid that bleary morning search through the medicine cabinet when your head’s pounding so hard you can hardly see.
It really works a treat. Genius.
Price: 39p per pack of 16.
Jade Bremner: In my tender state the last thing I want to consume is this foul-smelling, blood-like liquid.
Apparently betacyanin, the stuff that gives beetroot its colour, is an antioxidant that speeds up detoxification.
The first sip was revolting and didn’t stay down. After forcing it to, I admit my hangover subsided surprisingly quickly.
