Tied one on New Year's Eve? Here are some hangover remedies that go beyond the "hair of the dog that bit you."

6 Unique Hangover Remedies!

Soup for the Sauced

Soups such as menudo, haejangguk (Korean soup — pictured), pho, or borscht are popular cures in many countries. Soups will help with much-needed rehydration and will elevate protein and blood sugar levels, which slow the rate of alcohol absorption. Vegetables are good for nutrition, and the spicier and hotter the better to sweat out those toxins.


A favorite hangover cure in Russia is called Rassol. Basically it is salty water that has been used to boil cabbage, and then you drink it. Yum! So useful and popular is this cure that it has even been marketed in Russia as a soft drink.

Feeling Down Under?

Made from brewer's yeast, Marmite and Vegemite (both of which contain essential vitamin B complex) are full of folic acid and salt, both of which disappear during alcohol consumption. To transform a crummy day into a “g’day,” Australians spread it on toast.

Shot for the Shots

Stomach feeling queasy? Try this: the Prairie Oyster cure. For some, however, just the thought of this drink makes them feel like hurling.

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon tomato juice
1 whole egg yolk
2 dashes vinegar
1 dash pepper

Lemony Looped

Some Puerto Ricans rub a slice of lemon or lime in the armpit of their drinking arm before they start drinking to stop a hangover before it starts. Apparently, lemon prevents dehydration and therefore headaches because it helps retain fluid.

Pickle for the Pickled

Since all the body really needs to recover from a hangover is salt and water, some people swear by guzzling pickle juice to cure the aftermath of a night of heavy drinking. Pickle juice is also used as a sports drink, much like Gatorade.
