The Red Eye. (or Red Beer) A Bartender's Hangover Cure.

If you've ever had a hangover you know just how on spot the name of this drink associating itself with that morning after.

Red Eye hangover

Reputation has it that the Red Eye, or Red Beer, is a infamously low-brow or redneck mixed drink using the tomato juice as an excuse to help a poor drunken soul get back on his feet. Skip the brunch and Bloody Marys at the club, darling, and crack open a few cans right here in front of the family room TV.

But as always, before you pour yourself anything for a hangover beyond the V8 juice in this recipe, ESPECIALLY the risks of consuming a raw egg, please read our facts on drinking a little hair-of-the-dog-that-bit-ya.


  • 12 oz beer (a light beer will work, even one in a can)
  • 4 oz tomato juice or V8
  • 1 egg
  • 1 oz vodka (optional)

    In a glass, pour tomato juice, then beer overtop. Crack egg into the glass and drink.

    Medical experts agree that there is no strictly "safe" level of alcohol consumption. Find out more facts about alcohol use and heath here.
