7 Weird Hangover Cures from Around the World

By Sara Novak, Planet Green

You wake up with the headache from hell. You’re dehydrated, exhausted, and hungry. Some of our worst hangovers can happen when we’re traveling. Life is even more of a celebration when you’re on vacay. But even still, you’re desperate to soften the edge of this hangover.

From time-honored to unexpected and downright strange, every culture has one. From hair-of-the-dog formulas to deep fried goodness, and seriously gross concoctions, we’ve got the best and the brightest in global hangover grub. So grab some Advil, guzzle some aqua, and try your hand at one of these crazy/wonderful hangover bites.

1. Buffalo Milk

Don’t worry we’re not actually talking the milk of a buffalo here. Buffalo milk is a concoction drank in Namibia the day after a long night out and it’s basically a booze float made with ice cream, dark rum, cream liqueur, spiced rum, and whole cream, all mixed up into a totally delicious albeit numbing hangover cure, as seen on the show Three Sheets with Zane Lamprey.

Thanks. I find a drink(alcohol) and a vigorous workout helps a hangover.

A friend of mine who likes a glass or two or ....of wine suggested putting ice blocks in the wine, stops the dehydration. Guess what, it has definitely worked for me.

I have the perfect cure for a hangover.

Don't drink so much that you're hungover the next day.

Anyway, if you're dehydrated, bananas are great for replacing the potassium that you lost while letting your fluids. It cuts down on the achiness you feel. I'll take that with my eggs benedict for my breakfast anyway, even if I don't have a hang over.
