-apparently vinegar helps to resolve alcohol so it works good in hangover soup
-garlic is key
-hot sauce and/or horseradish is important
In medieval times, the Medical School of Salerno was already recommending the hair of the dog:
Si nocturna tibi noceat potatio vini
Hoc tu mane bibas iterum, et fuerit medicina
If an evening of wine does you in,
More the next morning will be medicine.
another hangover soup:
1/3 cup parsley leaves
3 garlic cloves
1 onion, quartered
2 large tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and quartered
1 46-ounce can of tomato juice
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 and 1/2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
pinch of cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
1 cup vodka
Garnish: 1 green pepper and 1 cucumber, both peeled, seeded, and chopped fine.
In a blender or food processor, chop the parsley, then drop in the garlic and onion. Add tomatoes, 1/2 cup of tomato juice, and the coriander. Stir into the rest of the tomato juice, with the worcestershire sauce, cayenne, salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight. When ready to serve, stir in vodka, ladle into bowls, and garnish with green pepper and cucumber. Serve with a side dish of ice packs.
