Morning After Mules: The Ultimate Guide to Hangover Relief

There’s nothing more fun than getting together with your friends, having a night out, and indulging in a few of your favorite cocktails–well, at least until the next morning when you realize you may have consumed one too many.

You know what we’re talking about…the dreaded hangover.

Hey, it happens to the best of us, and there’s certainly no worse feeling than having hangover side effects that include:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Lethargy and fatigue
  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Concentration problems
  • Eyesight disturbances
  • Poor memory
  • Gastrointestinal upsets: diarrhea, discomfort, flatulence, vomiting
  • Loss of hunger
  • Nausea
  • Excess Sweating
  • Depression and anxiety

As liquor lovers ourselves, we don’t want anyone to have to suffer the consequences of a night filled with a little too much fun.

And while we can’t actually prevent a hangover from occurring after drinking too much, we do know a thing or two about hangover relief.

The best way to avoid a hangover is to avoid overconsuming alcohol in the first place.

If you are drinking, be sure to drink on a full stomach and keep well hydrated.

If you wake up the next morning and still find yourself suffering from a hangover, we recommend mixing up the following alcohol-free cocktails to help ease your hangover symptoms and recover quickly!
