He added, “I love citrus. I love spice. You know, I can eat it in the morning. In the Bahamas, I always used to get a really spicy conch salad, like ridiculously spicy in the morning, and it just would blow the hangover right out [laughs]! And it’s something about these combination flavors that really just invigorate me.”

“And I just love the stories behind it,” he added. “It really captures my imagination, other people’s imaginations, because obviously citrus is an antibacterial. So it’s just a lot of fun and it just links in a lot of ties into the science of cooking.”

Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix from ‘Vanderpump Rules’ have a fizzy recovery mocktail

Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval from Vanderpump Rules told Showbiz Cheat Sheet they lean into a fizzy mocktail that infuses Alka-Seltzer along with ginger syrup and lavender honey. Sandoval also created a mocktail that can be made with or without the booze.

“If you’re gonna have cocktails, go with some fresh juices, especially watermelon and cucumber,” he explained. “They contain so much water that they keep everyone hydrated.”

“It’s easy and I’m into things that are carbonated,” he continued. “You take like a spiked seltzer and muddle like raspberries, blueberries, and maybe some citrus.” Mix the fruit with perhaps some vodka or tequila then top it with the seltzer. It just turns the seltzer into something more fruity and just kicks it up a notch.”

Madix also revealed she was behind Pinky’s Lemonade. “I love anything that’s like a lemony,” she said. “Like Pinky’s Lemonade, that was a drink I created many years ago for Pride actually.

Bravo trainer Jackie Warner from ‘Work Out’ suggests lemon water

Jackie Warner from Bravo shows like Work Out and Thintervention suggests chugging water with lots of lemons and also doing some stretching. “The best medicine for a hangover is lemon water and stretching,” she said in a Bravo digital original. “A hangover means that your body is dehydrated and full of toxins from alcohol. Detox and hydrate your body first by drinking two liters of water with lemon juice.”

She then suggested stretching before a workout is even attempted. Warner said to do tricep stretches and rotator cuff stretches and a chest stretch.

Bravolebs have more hangover remedy ideas

Below Deck Sailing Yacht chief stew Daisy Kelliher said a good pair of sunglasses was her solution to a job interview when she was hungover. Gail Simmons from Top Chef said she tries to keep eating and drinking long after the party is over.

“Nice crispy bacon, egg and cheese sandwich,” Tom Schwartz from Vanderpump Rules advised. “Some coconut water. Maybe a banana.

Scheana Shay from Vanderpump Rules said fried rice (or any rice) and a Sprite the next day helps her. Sandoval also suggested taking Midol Complete for a hangover.
