What You Really Need to Put in the Hangover Kit

Share This:

honeyA popular addition to the weekend wedding welcome bag is the “hangover kit”. Just search for such a thing and you will find antacids and tylenol in little bags as hangover remedies. And sure, medicine can help you feel better after a big evening of partying, but did you realize there are more tasty ways to handle a hangover?

One delicious way to help yourself feel better is to eat some honey.

It’s a natural ingredient that has antioxidant properties, and the article at Mother Earth Living says that “Because of its antioxidant properties, honey neutralizes the toxins created by consuming alcohol.” And the fructose is used to “convert the acetaldehyde made during alcohol metabolism into acetic acid”, a substance that is “burned up naturally by the body.”
Maybe some little honey straws should be added to the welcome bag. Buy a pack of 100 at Amazon. Or find some little jars of honey and add your own personalized labels. Guests could consume honey in their tea, on toast or biscuits, or right from the straw or spoon. Eating honey before, during and / or after the partying is all good. So consider serving desserts that are honey based at the wedding reception. Cheesecake and cookies can be made with honey. Or serve a specialty drink with honey as an ingredient.

Another food that helps with hangover recovery is tomatoes. Few people want to wake up in the morning and eat a tomato, even when feeling well! But drinking tomato juice or V8 could help make that headache disappear faster. Combine it with some honey on toast, and you’re good to go.
