I put my binge-drinking days behind me long ago. Becoming a caregiver and a dog-mom has a way of doing that, because you have things called “responsibilities.” But I do remember those days, and (unfortunately) many of the mornings after. I still know many of you like to go out on occasion and get a break from work, the kids, the spouse, what have you. So in the name of work, science and public service, I decided to conduct a controlled experiment in my home using Never Hungover, a bottle of cheap Blue Raspberry vodka, and Ancient Aliens on H2.
Never Hungover is a shot-type drink that is likely being sold in liquor stores near the cash register, along with similar-sized energy shots. Never Hungover has no carbs, sugar or calories. Its main ingredient is aloe vera, which supposedly provides hydration properties. The suggested retail price for one bottle is $2.99, but you can save 20% off your first online order with code 20NH through 3/31/15.
I think it’s a great idea to get a case of these directly from the website and have them at your party as party favors. Place them at the bar, near the cups as they are mixing their drinks.
Never Hungover can either be taken as a shot, or mixed in your drink. I sipped the stuff, and trust me… you’ll want to shoot or mix it. It’s also an interesting shade of yellowish-green, which makes sense, considering the Aloe Vera concentration.
You are supposed to drink one bottle for every four drinks, so I poured four shots of vodka into my glass and added the Never Hungover.
After mixing and adding some flavored carbonated water and ice, it turned into a very putrid-looking green drink that reminded me of the cocktails my friends and I used to throw together on a whim back in college. In hindsight, I would suggest just shooting it and getting it over with. And buying an alcoholic drink that is not flavored with “Blue Raspberry.”
So, the test. Ancient Aliens happened to be airing, so I decided to play the Ancient Aliens drinking game. It’s pretty simple: You drink every time the narrator is “On location,” every time the narrator says “As ancient astronaut theorists believe/suggest/etc.,” every time the narrator asks a question, every time the narrator appends the question with “And if so…,” and then drink twice every time Giorgio Tsoukalos talks.
Two shows in and it got funnier and funnier, and I got drunker and drunker. All I could handle was one four-shot beverage. I soon passed out for the evening, but not before burning my wrist when trying to turn off my bedside light.
I woke up. I had to be up and at ’em for petsitting gigs. And you know what? I felt great. NO headaches. NO queasiness. No dehydration. NONE of the symptoms of a hangover in spite of the fact that I made some very horrible decisions, starting with drinking Blue Raspberry Vodka. I was quickly ready to head out and take on my day of visits and walks.
This would be great to order for any upcoming party, or even just to keep on hand for guests if you regularly entertain in the home. I swear this stuff is great. So take it before or while you are drinking, one bottle for every four drinks, and when you sober up the next day, I hope you are as in good of shape as I was.
