“A Ganpat, chal daaru la”. Well, Ganpat won’t have a problem obeying that, but the hangover that remains after the booze for the next day will surely be troublesome. The feeling of “I will puke if I eat anything today” is just so absurd. Well, nothing to worry – one glass of lime water and things will go back to normal. Isn’t that’s what you generally think? Actually, there are some hangovers whose intensity is high enough to beat the booze-busting elements of lime. But, don’t worry though. Here is a list of quick homemade hangover cures that you can easily stock up to give you the much needed day-after relief.
Once again, the tomatoes come to the rescue! This highly beneficial fruit-cum-vegetable is one of the best ways to get your glucose levels up and running.

Just add a packet of ORS in a 1 liter bottle of pure water and drink it constantly throughout the day.
