How To Cure A Hangover! 3 Recipes to Get you to Work This Morning

For the vast majority of the people across this country – and worldwide it seems – yesterday was an event of monumental proportions. The Big Game was televised on televisions across the globe as well as on the internet – showcasing the ultimate in football glory. Millions of people convene for house parties or events at their local sports bar, throwing back cold beer and eating way too much pizza, hot dogs, cheese sticks and other junk food your arteries will hate you for the next morning.  Speaking of which, despite every other game during the football being played at either 1pm or 4pm EST, this one is in prime time and often ends quite late in the evening. This leads to very little sleep, since all of us need to get up and go to work the next morning. That is until they make the day after the game a national holiday – call it Super Monday or whatever. But I digress. Here are a few concoctions on how to cure a hangover:

About Jason M

Texas Style - Having grown up down south, I've grown an appreciation for the "bigger is better" mantra. Bigger and bolder flavor is something I crave in my beers. Some people are hop-heads, all they drink are IPA's and other hoppy beers. Others are big on wheat beers. Some like it dark. Me? I'm an all-the-above kind of guy. I've had a love for all varieties since I was young and that has not changed. Good beer is good beer.

I'm constantly seeking out the latest and greatest new variety, because despite having an old-time favorite beer, drinking the same old flavors over and over gets old. That being said, I've got to try something new, explore my boundaries. After all, variety is the spice of life, no?
