Woman Shares Hangover Cure for Over-25s but Her Method is so 'Extra' People Say Don't Drink

We've all woken up with a pounding headache, dry mouth and a heap of regret after a night drinking alcohol.

Recovery seems to get worse as you get older, with the dreaded two-day hangover very much a reality.

But a woman seems to have figured out a way to minimize alcohol's dreaded after-effects, although her lavish method has been branded "extra."

Katie Kuhne shared a clip to TikTok over the weekend captioned "for the 25 and up hangover crowd," which has been viewed more than one million times.

"This is how I prep for a weekend of drinking with my girlfriends," she says in on-screen captions.

Kuhne, from Scottsdale, Arizona, continues: "First of all I'm getting all packed up, I have some warm lemon water. I try to stick to a pure alcohol, like Tito's, and fresh ingredients in my drink."

She films lime and mint on her kitchen counter, as she continues: "Here I'm making Moscow mules but I'm avoiding the ginger beer to avoid a sugar hangover. So I use real ginger root. And if that's not enough flavor, I have these ginger tablets which have active ginger which can dissolve in it as well.

"And then at night of course I take one of these to avoid a hangover, and water, water, water," she says holding a pack of Party Smart.

"In the morning I'll take either one or both of these detox and digest, or antioxidant. And for post-drinking anxiety, CBD gummies," she adds.

People have praised Kuhne's level of preparedness, but some reckoned it was simply easier to not drink.

"I legit thought this was satire," Darla commented.

Kristen Schwartz asked: "Why even drink at that point."

Similarly, Becky commented: "So much work when you can just simply not drink."

Tracy Draco asked: "Well why party?!"

GinaDilello simply pointed out: "The amount of steps."

Molly Mary joked: "POV when you drink so much you find out ways to do it better."

Bridget McLaughlin said: "If people have to do all this, why drink?"

Viktoria raved: "I aspire to be this prepared. I thought putting Advil on the nightstand was 'preparing.'"

Brianna Carney admitted: "I mix five different alcohols and then eat pizza at 3am."

For anyone else needing tips, the U.K.'s health service, the NHS, shared some cures on their website, saying: "Dealing with a hangover involves rehydrating your body to help you deal with the painful symptoms. The best time to rehydrate is before going to sleep after a drinking session. Painkillers can help with headaches and muscle cramps.

"Sugary foods may help you feel less trembly. In some cases, an antacid may be needed to settle your stomach first. Bouillon soup (a thin, vegetable-based broth) is a good source of vitamins and minerals, which can top-up depleted resources. It's also easy for a fragile stomach to digest.

"You can replace lost fluids by drinking bland liquids that are gentle on your digestive system, such as water, soda water and isotonic drinks."

Newsweek has reached out to Kuhne for a comment.
