Russian hangover cures in two views.
There is a dish that is recognized as a guaranteed hangover remedy in Russia, but it takes the bravest of brave to even brave eating it.
The recipe is for a thick stew called haash, which actually comes from the Caucasus is a pain in itself to prepare: you have to cook tripe and beef trotters for six hours and consume the result with radish and a lot of garlic.
Another Russian cure for the morning after was allegedly discovered by Tsar Nicholas II, and is called “Nikolashka”. You take a slice of lemon, put a teaspoon of sugar and a teaspoon of coffee on top, and eat in one bite.
The Russians also claim one of the best remedies for hangovers is to simply drink the juice squeezed from a cucumber. Not sure how you do that exactly, but Vodka literally means water in Russian, so who are we to second-guess?
Finally, many Russians swear that eating a pickle the next morning is an old stand-by for alleviating the pain of a hangover. We are not sure whether it's a dill or sweet or some other kind, but if we had to pick from everything on this list from Russia, we'd start with that last one first.
