What's the best way to cure a whiskey hangover? Well, it depends.

The prevailing belief is that a hangover is caused by dehydration and the metabolism of alcohol by your liver. The most recent study I read suggests caffeine, ibuprofen or some other vasodilator which will literally make the veins in your head stop throbbing, water lots of it. Please God. But, really, how I cure a whiskey hangover? Pork fat and champagne. I am not joking. I don't actually feel better, but God help me, I don't feel worse.

Hangovers are a pretty common malady, affliction, cost of doing business. So a good healthy dose of pork fat and champagne, coffee, some aspirin and a lot of water. Drink a lot of water while your drinking, trust me. Just trust me. It's a lot easier than drinking more shots. Unless your on a champagne drunk, in which case, go with God man, there's no helping that.

And that's how to cure a whiskey hangover.
