The morning after a big night of drinking can be painful, to say the least. And while you should be hydrating with plenty of water and electrolyte drinks, sometimes you just want a hair of the dog cocktail to cure what ails you. Not only do these six drinks taste great, they’ll help deliver much needed hydration, vitamins and electrolytes to your system.
6 Cocktails You Should Actually Order to Treat a Hangover
This one may seem like a no-brainer, but there’s a reason we come back to it time and again to treat a hangover. The Bloody Mary’s salty, spicy tomato juice mix is full of electrolytes to help clear your foggy head of last night’s transgressions. If you’re not into the classic iteration of the drink, these variations will work just as well.
Not only is the Coconut Vodka Soda one of our favorite summer beach drinks, it’s a mild way to get your hair of the dog fix the morning after. Coconut water and soda are both super hydrating, and the bubbly mix will help to settle an upset stomach.
Watermelon is packed with, well, water, so it’s one of the most hydrating foods you can eat—or drink, for that matter. This low-ABV cocktail is sweet without being saccharine, and its cold, frozen consistency will help soothe your hungover soul.
A cooling popsicle is just the thing to help cure your hangover blues. As the Melona ice cream bar melts, it dilutes this already low-abv drink even more and works with the coconut water to help with hydration.
Beer drinkers will love this aperitif-infused shandy, which combines Campari and Cocchi Rosa for a bittersweet morning tipple. A salted guava syrup adds some fruitiness and much needed electrolytes.
While a regular Paloma is already a pretty good hangover drink in its own right, this salted rosemary version will help replenish your electrolytes to boot. Grapefruit juice is full of potassium and vitamin C, so you’ll be getting some much needed vitamins as well.
