4th of July Hangover Hacks from Founder Charles

4th of July Hangover Hacks from Founder Charles

The 4th of July is right around the corner, which means great times with great people — but also tons of food, lots of drinking, and what our Founder Charles likes to call ‘The Hangover from Hell’. 

Him and his buddies have been known to sneak in two (or three, let’s be real) drinks more than they should every once in a while. That might be a problem for his head the next day, but it also means he’s great at curbing nasty hangovers . 

He shared his best day-after hacks with us, and because we know you’re probably the type who loves having a good time, we’re sharing them with you too. 

Stay Hydrated

First thing’s first: hydration is key. Alcohol is going to dehydrate your body, so you need to stay ahead of the game. In fact, you should start hydrating before the party even begins. Here’s a quick and easy way to keep those electrolytes in check:

The Hydration Hero

What You’ll Need

How to Make It

  1. Add a pinch of sea salt or electrolyte powder to your water. 
  2. Drink throughout the day to keep your electrolytes balanced.

Choose Your Drinks Wisely

When it comes to alcohol, not all drinks are created equal. Stick to clear spirits like tequila with club soda and lime. Stay away from sugary mixers and gluten-heavy beers. If you’re going for a mixed drink anyway just make sure it’s made with real fruit juice. Need some inspo? Check these out. 

Tequila Twister

What You’ll Need

  • Tequila
  • Club soda 
  • Lime

How to Make It

  1. Pour a shot of tequila over ice. 
  2. Top with club soda. 
  3. Squeeze in a fresh lime wedge. 
  4. Go crazy!

The (Almost) Healthy Margarita

What You’ll Need

  • 2.5 oz tequila or mezcal blanco. 
  • 2.5 oz freshly squeezed lime. 
  • Chili lime seasoning (or margarita salt).
  • 1 tbsp honey.
  • Ice.

How to Make It

  1. Rim two glasses with a wedge of lime before dipping them into a small plate with chili lime seasoning or margarita salt. 
  2. Combine the honey, tequila or mezcal, and lime juice. 
  3. Add that along with ice to a high power blender and blend. 
  4. Pour into your glass, garnish with lime wheels and enjoy!

Eat Smart

The 4th of July hangover from hell is not just because of drinking, food (no matter how good) also plays a huge hand in how you feel. Staying away from fried foods can make a big difference. Focus on eating things that are easier on your digestive system and won’t add to the strain alcohol will cause.

Go for nutrient-rich foods like eggs (great source of B vitamins), noni juice (also high in B vitamins), and fresh fruits and veggies for extra hydration and fiber.

Post-Party Recovery

If after all that you still wake up feeling like you got hit by a bus, deploy the recovery plan. Charles’ involves shooting down a few secret concoctions that help make you feel like you’ve basically been reborn. 

What You’ll Need

The ‘Morning After’ Drink
  1. Add activated charcoal to a large glass of water.
  2. Add a pinch of sea salt.
  3. Bottoms up!
Citrus Power Punch
  1. Mix a teaspoon of MSM (a compound found in sulfur) and Camu Camu powder (super high in Vitamin C) into a glass of orange juice.
  2. Add a splash of noni juice for extra B vitamins.
  3. Cheers.

Bonus Track

Everyone loves free things, so here’s some bonus tips and tricks from Charles to prevent feeling like death incarnate the day after — you’re welcome. 

  • Pack electrolytes: Anytime you’re out, bring an electrolyte pack to add to your water.
  • Zero sugary drinks: Stick with natural mixers and stay away from anything with high-fructose corn syrup.
  • Keep it chill: Enjoy your favorite drinks but keep things balanced. Trust, your body will thank you the next day.
