Mankind’s relationship with alcohol goes back thousands of years. So does his relationship with hangovers. I can only imagine how terrible hangovers were thousands of years ago, drinking a rough unfiltered, probably bacteria-laced “hooch” all to get your buzz on. But fortunately for us, prickly pear extract has been shown in studies to help reduce hangover symptoms.
Imagine what life would be like on the day after St Paddy’s day if you were able to function. Or on Jan 1st, there are some many times life is a bit rough after a fun night out.
Maybe they need to consider making a liquor out of cactus. Wouldn’t that work right? I mean in theory if cactus root extract helps with hangovers then if you fermented it, distilled it, then it could end up being the first hangover free spirit. Maybe that is just wishful thinking. Either way cheers to you and the next night of drinking you have.
So everyone is on board that apple cider vinegar is good for you. But it is someone inconvenient to lug the liquid around make some cocktail and drink it. The reason you have to make a cocktail is that it tastes so bad. I have been drinking it for about five years now and still don’t enjoy the taste. Granted I do like flavoring it with honey for those benefits. But I have good news, you can get the benefits of by taking apple cider vinegar pills.
People have been reaching for apple cider vinegar for generations. It is truly one of the folk remedies. Best of all it actually has a lot of proven benefits. ACV helps with blood pressure and blood sugar. Those benefits also help those on a weight loss regime. I personally have some with hot water and a squeeze of lemon every morning to help my body detoxify.
Apple cider vinegar has been used a cure all folk remedy for many, many years. But honest apple cider vinegar tastes pretty terrible. It is best to consume diluted with water and sweetened with honey. Who has the time for that? So how do you get the benefits without the suffering? Capsules, best abbreviated as ACV Pills. But putting all the positive in a pill form make it much easier to consume.
What are the benefits of apple cider vinegar? it is considered a natural detoxifier. This helps the body in multiple ways. Also as a by product of the detoxifying properties, ACV can help weight loss potential. Add in kelp, seaweeds that grow in shallow water and are nutrient-rich waters. Kelp has been eaten and used medicinally for hundreds of years in various forms apple pectin and other healthy ingredients you have an easy way to kick up your health and wellness regime.
Over the years the amount of boxed wine drank by college kids has to incredible. Years ago wine companies stepped up their game with upscale quality boxed wine. Recently, I consumed copious amounts of Bota box wine and was quite pleased. Now canned wine is a thing. And it is a good thing, we will explain. Granted, It is Always Sunny in Philadelphia was ahead of their time when they brought up canned wine in several episodes.
First, it doesn’t break so it is safer outside at the beach and pools. Second, it is lighter. That means companies will pay less to send it across the country also reducing the carbon footprint. Speaking of carbon footprint, aluminum is a very desired material to recycle. Making it less likely to end up in a landfill. Also, the can blocks sunlight which will help with spoilage.
I suggest go pick up a 4 pack of wine and prove to yourself the benefits.
So you could say Kombucha Beer is the perfect marriage of kombuch and beer. Kombucha tea is a fermented beverage is a bit of natural occurring alcohol in it. Beer obviously has alcohol in it from yeast as well. The similarities between beer brewing and kombucha brewing are very much a thing.
A Cicerone, the beer world’s equivalent of a Sommelier. Spoke about how that the Kombucha offers a sourness to balance the natural sweetness of the beer as well as adding fruitiness from the Hibiscus. By blending with the right kinds of (similar to Kombucha) yeast found naturally in many Belgian ales, beer and Kombucha tea can be married into one delicious beverage.
Due to its bacterial component, kombucha ferments a bit warmer, around 82 Fahrenheit. Typically beer yeast does best at a cooler temp – usually in the mid-60’s. This makes a small challenge that brewers have been able to overcome.
Whiskey is back to being a real big deal. That’s a good thing, and even better for you we have some basic facts about whiskey (or is it whisky?) to help you sound smarter during your next drunken bar rant. Here are some fun facts about whiskey or is it whisky?
Both Whiskey & Whisky are correct
Scotch producers use Whisky and Canadian producers followed suit feeling their whisky was as great quality as Scotland’s. Japan also uses Whisky. American & Irish producers use Whiskey. Here is a tip to remember this? America & Ireland have an ‘e’ in them and use ‘whiskey’ with the ‘e’.
Whiskey Means “Water of Life”
Whiskey is derived from the Gaelic word “Uisge Beatha,” which means “water of life.” That phonetically became “usky,” and which evolved into “whiskey.” Feel free to use that in your next toast.
Stay tuned for more fun facts about whiskey in the future.
Cinco de Mayo is approaching us rapidly. That is the day many don fake mustaches, drinking copious amounts of tequila and crush light refreshing Mexican cuervas. Or beers as you gringos refer to them as. But you will pay they next morning for all this unless you take a hangover supplement.
My favorite Mexican beer is Negra Modelo followed closely by Sol. Sol is refreshing but difficult to find. When you are out on Cinco de Mayo, I suggest you try a Paloma. A Paloma is a traditional Mexican cocktail. Typically made with tequila and grapefruit soda (Squirt or Jarritos). Also, can be made with grapefruit juice and club soda.
Back to the hangover supplement. If you want to survive a fun day of drinking, you need to properly prepare yourself. When you drink your body requires extra B vitamins. B vitamins are crucial for energy and metabolism. Many people who drink are deficient in B vitamins.
Drinkers need to consider eating more eggs. Eggs help the body deal with alcohol and b vitamins. Really it is kind of like a hangover pill for people who drink. The egg is the perfect food for people who drink. Eggs are so nutritious that they’re often referred to as “nature’s multivitamin.” Eggs also have powerful antioxidants and ample brain nutrients that many people who drink are deficient in.
One whole egg contains an amazing range of nutrients. Protein, healthy fat, vitamin b12, vitamin b2 aka riboflavin, vitamin A, vitamin b5 aka panthenic acid, selenium, among other minerals.
Plus, what about the capability of the egg? Did you know that the 100 creases in a chef’s hat mean the 100 ways to cook an egg. My preference is just eggs over easy. But you can never go wrong with an egg sandwich, with some meat of course. Who would think being healthy while drinking would be so easy and delicious?

You’re going to cut back on drinking this week. And you mean it this time. Why do we do this to ourselves every Friday? It’s pointless, isn’t it? Why not go for a jog instead? Nope you wake up Saturday and crack a beer, a skunked beer. Maybe jogging isn’t a bad idea. But, jogging doesn’t administer beer into your system. So what do you do?
Jog to the store and grab a new 6 pack. Or you could jog, ride a bike, briskly walk to a bar and grab a beer. I guess you could drink the skunked beer. It will not kill you, or even hurt you more than a regular beer.
Wait!? Where did you drink last night? Oh, that’s right. Cornerstone Pub. Where did you send your resume last week? Cornerstone Pub. Where did you get kicked out of last night after throwing up in your friend’s beer? Cornerstone Pub. Is this why so many unemployed people drink?
Yep drink the skunked beer.
