Have you ever heard that if you drink beer before wine, you won’t have a bad hangover . . . but if you drink wine before beer, then look out?
Well . . . it turns out that’s not true. According to a new study, it doesn’t matter if you drink beer then wine or wine then beer . . . the order you drink different things doesn’t have any effect on your hangover.
The researchers didn’t test the other “drink order” question: Beer before liquor, never been sicker . . . liquor before beer, you’re in the clear. But studies in the past have shown that one’s also a myth.
So what DOES help you predict how bad your hangover is going to be? This isn’t exactly groundbreaking, but it’s how drunk you feel.
The researchers found that people who got really hammered or threw up had worse hangovers the next day than people who handled their booze better.
