The inevitable is coming on the morning of November 1st: you'll technically wake up but you'll feel dead inside. You'll stumble around, unable to control your limbs like you normally can. You'll approach the bathroom mirror, and your face will be unrecognizable. Your body will resemble a crime scene. You will hear moans and screams from other rooms in the house: your friends awoke with the same fate.
And then you'll throw up in the sink.
The splitting headache, the smeared makeup, the sensitivity to light and noise: You have been contracted with the classic Halloween Hangover. The night before may have been amazing, but a little too much candy and too many cocktails made you pass out in your costume and now you're a mess, and unable to digest anything or even open your eyes.
But don't worry, we're here to help.
If you want to be prepared, get your hangover cure shopping done now to save yourself the morning of the 1st. Or at least bookmark this page for then, you won't regret it, trust me. We have your back here at Too Into It, and our #MONSTERWEEK is the best time to give you a couple of tips on helping cure the inevitable zombie outbreak you will be experiencing in the near future.
"Corpse Reviver #2"
The classic "hair of the dog" hangover cure, with a name that perfectly fits our list. The "Corpse Reviver" shaken in a cocktail glass with ice and strained into a chilled martini glass. The ingredients are:
- 1 ounce gin
- 1 ounce Lillet Blanc
- 1 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice
- 1 ounce orange liqueur
This Mexican drink is similar to a Bloody Mary, but with beer. I don't even really like beer and I LOVE this drink. You rub a lime wedge around the rim of a pint glass and dip in a mix of salt and cayenne, then add the remaining ingredients, beer last.
- .1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
- 2 drops hot sauce
- 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
- pinch or two of black pepper and celery salt
- Mexican lager beer
Fernet & Coke
This drink comes to us by way of Argentina, where they swear by it. Fernet is a herbal liquor that tastes a bi like black licorice. You essentially just mix over ice.
- 1 ounce Fernet
- 2 ounces Coca Cola
This delicious drink is sweet and comforting but still a good pick me up. Mix the following ingredients into a mug:
- 1 cup strong coffee
- 1/2 ounce tequila
- 1/2 ounce Kahlua
- 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
- cinnamon (sprinkled on top)
This is obviously a classic morning after drink, but you can put a twist on an old favorite by checking out our post on All Natural Bloody Mary's with Garlic Infused Vodka!
