Celebrated bartender Salvatore Calabrese is here to help anyone suffering from a hangover. He explains why we get hangovers and how to prevent them before, during and after overindulging. If that doesn t work, he offers a range of recipes to ease the pain, from the Apothecary, Bartender s Breakfast and Corpse Reviver to the Spirit Lifter, Suffering Bastard and Wake-Up Call. If it s impossible to stomach the thought of more booze, try one of his non-alcoholic remedies, including the Cleanser Cocktail, Dale DeGroff s Macho Gazpacho or a Virgin Mary. Packed with pithy, insightful quotes and expert advice, this book also provides a handy hangover scale to judge the level of suffering, a three-day detox programme and a survey of herbal remedies.
