Prevent Your Hangover (just use my method with caution)

Mary Rambin hangover cure

By now you must know how much I hate hate HATE consuming anything processed. So when I tell you I down a 5 hour Energy before I go out for a big night of drinking – anything over 3 glasses of wine – you know there must be a good reason.

Actually I’ll give you two:

  1. I find it really hard to stay engaged in conversation after 9pm. Yes, I’m an old lady. The caffeine keeps me alert until at least 11:30pm if I take it around 6pm.
  2. The ridiculous amount of B12 in that bad boy really does make a huge difference in how I feel the next day.


I obviously didn’t think this one up myself, I had the aid of a seasoned drinker to lead me to the devil and I can’t deny it works.

Here’s the catch. You can’t do this 3 nights in a row. Well, you can, I tried doing 2 nights in Vegas for CES one year and ended up shaking like a crazy person.

Let me be clear: it’s not that I drink that much. It’s that even small amounts of alcohol can give me a headache the next day and I’d rather not go through that.

There is a little more method to this madness to help my hangover. Three more tips:


If I know I’m going to be drinking more than say 3 glasses of wine, I stick to one type of alcohol all night long. Vodka or wine or beer, but not a mix. This can get tricky if I’m doing dinner then a concert because dinner calls for wine but I don’t dare drink wine in a dive bar, so I usually opt for vodka all the way through.


I don’t use ANY mixers in my drinks. That means no craft cocktails or any funny business.


I’m not sure why this is such torture, but it is absolutely necessary, so I squeeze in some lemons and take it down quickly.
