A new test based on 100 traditional remedies from around the world, promise to ease your throbbing head and reduce your urge to vomit – although some are so unusual they might well make you feel worse.
Back in ancient Roman times, for instance, they believed deep frying a canary was the best way to cure you of your hangover, but it’s probably best not to try this one at home.
The test works by asking you on a scale of one to five how hungover you are.
You can then tick a box to see if you eat meat and fish, and answer yes or no to the question: ‘If it will aid you in your recovery, could you stand the idea of more drink?’
The test by Ebookers will then generate a hangover cure from around the world that it claims will be the best cure for your pain.
