Tomatoes Cure Holiday Hangovers

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – This holiday party season, ensure you’re not at work with a wicked hangover.

Memphis-based hangover historian Rollin Riggs, who published a collection of hangover remedies from around the world titled, The Hangover Handbook: 101 Cures for Humanity’s Oldest Malady (Mustang Publishing), knows how to hide a night of heavy drinking.

Riggs says holiday parties paired with depression over the economy lead to heavier drinking amongst the population.

He recommends working stiffs to knock back lots of tomatoes to hide a night of stiff drinks.

Riggs explains, “Tomatoes are a universal ingredient in hangover cures. Bloody marys, menudo for people in Latin America. In China they eat pickled sheep’s eye in a tomato broth.”

Tomatoes are rich in the vitamins, minerals, and enzymes that alcohol tends to deplete, making them a drunkard’s best friend.

Riggs also advises partiers to stick to pricier, clear liquors, like vodka, gin, and white wine, because they’re less likely to make you sick.

If all else fails, Riggs says, “Put on really dark sunglasses and tell your boss you have glaucoma.”
