The Top 5 Cures For La Cruda

We all know it’s coming, New Year’s is on the weekend this year, and it’s bound to be a doozy. But, we can help. Here are the most common cures for that cruda (that means hangover).

1.) Menudo

In my social circles, menudo is the go–to method for scaring away that nasty cruda. The power of the Aztec gods? Meat? Corn? Who knows why, but word has it that it works.

2.) More alcohol

Hair of the dog, as it were. This method is perhaps one of the oldest cures for cruda. Does it work?

3.)  Coffee and aspirin

We’ve written about this before, it’s not just speculation — it’s science.

4.)  Chile

Not the country, the spice. Perhaps it’s an old wives’ tale, but for some reason spicy food seems to have the effect of scaring away a hangover. Maybe only because it gives you something else to worry about.

5.) Not getting drunk in the first place

This one may seem to come out of left field, but sans alcohol you probably won’t feel so bad.

With these things, we inevitably miss some, what are your best cures?
