Top 15 High School Drinks

In this article we regress from our hunt for the best hangover cure and instead pay homage to the drinks that made us the people we are today.  Think back to your first sip of alcohol.  High school drinking was a delicate balance between “wanting to rage” and “projectile vomiting.”  This interesting intersection allowed for some creative and simply nostalgic alcoholic beverages to surface.  From the respectable 40oz of Old E to the mysterious allure of Jungle Juice, we revisit our founding fathers and pay our respects.

14. Pucker – Nobody knows whether Pucker is supposed to be a mixer or what, but it’s almost always drunk straight from the bottle.  It’s strong sugary flavors make it tasty (“omg! It like doesn’t taste like ah-ka-hawl!”) but will ultimately end you up with a restless sleep and brain splitting hangover.

13. Southern Comfort aka SoCo
– Orange flavored whiskey.  Fits nicely in your pocket, making for easy access into school dances, detention, and sober grad night.  My first blackout was from SoCo. Go me.

Hangover Pill Review: THC (The Hangover Cure)

The fellows over at THC contacted Caveday to do a review of their product.  Who were we to say no?  As we continue the hunt for the best hangover cure, we agreed to review THC, really pushing the boundaries of the product and our livers.  Alcohol was consumed in mass quantities.  Dancefloors were wrecked.  Friendships were made and shattered in the blink of an eye.  The night was epic and The Hangover Cure was put to a test that most gods would fear.

Phở – The Best Hangover Cure?

Amongst many circles, the Vietnamese noodle soup Phở (pronounced Fuh), is heralded as the best hangover cure known to mankind.  What do we say here at Caveday?  Phở shizzle.

pho vietnamese soup

Phở is a magical soup made of beef, broth and rice noodles.  Seriously, its magic.  I’ll explain later.  It is served in a bowl with thin cuts of well done or rare steak.  For the more adventurous sort, tripe (stomach), tendons, liver, chicken hearts, or other risky business can be added.  The broth is made from a simmered concoction of which only a level 50 Vietnamese wizard may be privy to the secret.

Weird Hangover Cures

In search of the best hangover cure and the answer to all our prayers, Caveday has stumbled open some weird hangover cures along the way.  From herbal remedies to black magic, we’ve seen it all.  And frankly, we’re desperate enough to try them.

Umeboshi Pickled Plums

From the country that created tentacle cartoon porn and vending machines that sell panties, leave it to the Japanese to come up with a strange hangover cure.  Meet the umeboshi picked plum.  Hungover Japanese people will suck on these sour plums until they dissolve.  The idea is that the acid in the umeboshi will break down the alcohol faster.  Considering that most Japanese business negotiations happen over sake and whiskey, and Japanese are strong in business, this probably works.  I’m going to try it out.  Tomorrow morning.

Hangover Cures – Mythbusted (Part 1)

hangover iv

We get a lot of questions on the topic: which hangover cures work and which ones don’t?  As we already know, the only real remedy is spending time in the darkness drinking water (see Caveday).  There is a lot of bullshit floating around on the internet and the topic of hangover cures is no exception.  We decided to put together a three part article, laying the smack down on bunk hangover cures.  Let us begin on this quest for truth…

December Drinking, Holiday Hangovers

Christmas is here and all of the drunken debauchery that comes with it.  Eggnog and brandy, Goldschlager, spiked punch and glogg – there are endless ways to get possessed by the holiday spirit, particularly when served on ice.

Ugly Sweater Party

It’s no secret that the consumption of alcohol escalates during the holiday season.

Fact (yes, Caveday has actual information): The $49 billion distilled spirits industry makes more than 25% of its profits from Thanksgiving to the New Year. (Distilled Spirits Council of the United States)

This is partly due to the anticipatory air that pervades the countdown to the New Year.  The neighborhood is lit with festive lights and malls are decked in a full-force holiday blitzkrieg.  Companies throw office parties.  Friends throw ugly sweater parties.  Old friends return to town and families glutton over glorious feasts.  On top of it all, there is NO WORK, unless you’re employed by a douche company, which you should quit anyways.

Post Alcohol Blues (PABs)

acronym: PABs  • noun : The feelings of uselessness, embarrassment, and general depression that accompany a hangover.  Typically linked to blackout drinking.

molecular study of pabs

The topic of Post Alcohol Blues (PABs) has come up frequently in previous articles.  While vomiting, headaches, and lethargy are the prime physical characteristics of a hangover, PABs constitute the hellish mental and emotional symptoms.  Typical thoughts during PABs include: “Why does everyone hate me?”, “I’m never drinking again.”, and “What is the point of it all anyways?”  The emotional holocaust created by PABs can get to be quite ridiculous.  You may find yourself embarrassed to answer phone calls from your friends, unable to make eye contact, or crying over your cat that died in elementary school.
