The 5 Best Cocktails to Cure a Hangover

By

We’ve all been there—you hit the bottle a little too hard the night before, and that sluggish ache is now here to ruin your day. You have a hangover. While hydration and rest work wonders, and a Prairie Oyster will certainly take your mind off the pain, we’re big believers in the magical power of hair of the dog. There’s nothing that softens the blow of a bad hangover better than a gooey, cheesy breakfast sandwich and a well-curated cocktail.

Here are five of our favorite hangover cocktails to cure you the morning after.

The Bloody Mary is our go-to cure—along with its tequila and clamato juice variations. Fresh tomato juice fills an empty stomach while the cocktail’s spiciness will help you sweat out nasty toxins.

The Essentials

Vodka
Tomato Juice
Worcestershire Sauce

The Mimosa is a brunchtime favorite for a reason. Sweet, citrusy orange juice works with effervescent Champagne to quench your thirst, give you a boost of vitamin C and help you forget about last night’s transgressions. We suggest setting up a whole bar dedicated to the beverage because one is never enough.

The Essentials

Orange Juice
Champagne

No one can deny that a bacon, egg and cheese is one of the swiftest hangover cures out there. And while this variation on the Whiskey Sour leaves out the cheese, bacon-infused bourbon and frothy egg whites give it a savory depth that’ll kick that hangover right to the curb.

The Essentials

Bacon Whiskey
Fresh Orange Juice
Egg Whites

After a night of drinking, caffeine isn’t just a good idea—it’s essential. Pull double duty and spike your morning cup of Joe with a hearty shot of whiskey for a warming cocktail that will help you shake the cobwebs out of your head. Fresh whipped cream sweetens the deal and makes the morning a little brighter.

The Essentials

Irish Whiskey
Coffee
Whipped Cream

The morning after a rough night, nothing goes down quite as easily as an ice cold beer. Add some spice, salt and citrus to your brew, and you’re on the fast track to curing even the worst hangover. Bartender Allison Kave’s version of the classic Michelada gets an umami bite from soy and Worcestershire sauces, along with a peppery kick from two types of hot sauces.

The Essentials

Michelada Mix
Lager
Lime
