“I never drink anything stronger than gin before breakfast.” -- W.C. Fields

Which Drinks give you a hangover?

All forms of alcohol can give you a nasty hangover. Some types of alcohol, however, can be meaner to you than others.
Avoid like the plague:

different types of alcohol. Your body takes longer to
recognize and metabolize the individual types.

Carbonated (or bubbly) drinks like sparkling wines, or in mixed
drinks. These speed up the absorption of alcohol.

Sweet drinks (Margaritas, pina coladas, and other ‘fru-fru’ drinks).
Not just because you look like a sissy drinking them, but because
sweet flavors can disguise the taste of alcohol, and you may not
realize how much alcohol you are really consuming. 

Drinks made from dark liquors. These contain more congeners,
especially bourbon. Click for more information on

Red wine in excess. While beneficial for your health (in
moderation), red wine has more congeners than white wine.
Red wine also contains a substance called Tyramine, which is
found in cheeses and rotting meat and is thought by some
to cause headaches.

Cheap liquors (sorry!). More expensive brands generally
undergo a more extensive distillation process that removes more
of the congeners that make you ill.

Different types of wine glasses with different types of wineIf you must have one of the drinks listed above, you should be able to enjoy it as long as you follow our other hangover prevention guidelines, and, as always, drink in moderation.
