Two Panadol, a big Mac and a can of Coke is how I treat a hangover. GOOD magazine presents 10 “Healthy” ways to help a hangover including:

  • Miso soup and eggs. Popular in Japan.
  • Kombucha tea. No idea. But it contains alcohol, so sounds promising; and
  • Sex.

Not strictly about wine, I know. The full list is here <link>.

Update: The Hungover Cookbook

Only $8 on Amazon, the book (read the cover carefully) classifies six different types of hangovers with recipes for each, mind games and quizzes to see if you’re actually hungover or just still drunk.

Looks like the perfect gift for a wine lover. I’ve got wine apps on my iPhone but I’d happily receive one of these.

A book listing the top 100 wineries in the world will retail for $1 million.  The reason for the price? Every purchaser of the book will also receive a six-bottle case of wine from every one of the 100 wineries listed.

Having just completed a post about why we should all drink champagne this New Year, I discover the New York Times review of “The Widow Clicquot,” by Tilar J. Mazzeo. <link

We all know her quote about drinking champagne (repeated at the bottom of this post) but this one, as the reviewer notes, it is certainly prescient, given she wrote it in the 1860s, if not as colourful.

 “The world is in perpetual motion, and we must invent the things of tomorrow. One must go before others, be determined and exacting, and let your intelligence direct your life. Act with audacity.”  

Exactly Madam! Act with audacity and drink champagne this New Year.

The book itself is available from Amazon <link>.

Aforementioned quote: “I drink champagne when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it – unless I’m thirsty.” Though it may have been Lily Bollinger who said this.
