Club Soda as a ward against hangover?

Postby frankennietzsche » Mon Dec 04, 2006 4:40 pm

It seems to work for me. Two nights in the past week, I would take a short break from dinking and down a fairly large amount of clug soda, then continiue drinking. The next day, little or no hangover.

Do you think it's just the ammount of liquid consumed or could the sodium, carbonation and/or any of the other scant ingredients in it affect this prevention? (I tried mineral water but to little avail, by the way.)

I found club soda a hangover helper too. But usually in the morning with mineral salts stirred in.

I'd have to go with the hydration.

Here's a differential diagnosis I found in a medical text I used to get my degree. Yes, my books had advertisements in them.

"Professor McBoozington's Olde Timey Home Remedies have been trusted by Women of Breeding for years. Finally, you too can bubble Demon Rum out of your bloodstream with Dr. McBoozington's Carbonificated Hydrastatic Exiler. Now with more laudenum!"

green tea works for me. I'll have to try this club soda method.

I have to say the scotch and club soda drinking I have done this year have been very good about hangovers. And yes I will just shoot some club soda or flavored sparling waterin the middle of the endrunkening just to freshen up and revive myself.

I'm not a fan of clubs, or their soda. But if it works for you, beat my guest.

Sounds to me like a job for the Myth Busters.

Those guys are pretty busy these days though, so I'll get right on it this weekend.

I had two or three pints of club soda last night before I left the Mag Bar after a few beers and many rounds of shots and apparently I became an Admiral, somehow. I got home and had a couple of beers. No hangover today to speak of, but it wasn't the heaviest of drinking nights, either.

Nice to see you read it~ and missed me as well. Someday your aim will get better young grasshopper...someday...

Anywho, my biggest problem with club soda is it dinks the drink. Even when I make an Old Fashioned, I use water, not soda. I guess I'm a purist. As far as hangovers are concerned, I don't drink sweet drinks-ergo no hangover.

I would hope so. If anyone put club soda in my old fasihoned I would be totally pissed.

I think it is simply the hydration that keeps the hangover away. I agree with the doctor.

club soda is good for rehydration because it can have a few different salts in it, which need replacing if you've been sweating or pissing too much. should make you feel a bit better. could just be that it's nice and fizzy and settles your gippy tummy. I prefer to think however, that it is magic, and whatever brand of soda water you drink pump a little bit of hope and wonderment into each bottle just to make you feel better when hungover
