Get relief from last night’s excesses with this collection of the very best hangover cures from the world's most celebrated bartenders All manner of weird and wonderful remedies have been developed to soothe the effects of a hangover, from eating a plate of owl's eggs to rubbing the rind of a lemon into the armpit. Fortunately for today's drinkers, this compilation features popular and effective modern fixes taken from leading bartenders that use much more palatable ingredients. More than 40 "hair of the dog" mixtures, such as Banana Cow and Suffering Bastard, are offered along with 45 recipes for nonalcoholic juices and smoothies. Information and guidance on the effects of alcohol on health is also provided, with sections covering the effects of drinking on the liver, the relationships of drinking with heart disease and weight gain, and the long-term consequences of overdoing it. Hand-tinted stills from the golden age of Hollywood show film stars in a range of compromising states and add a tonic of whimsy to this tasty blend of humor and sound advice. (hb)
