6. Very good remedy for hangover

Over the time, we, Romanians, have developed a great cure for hangovers. Our main solution is to eat one of our sour soups, called “Ciorba” after you wake up from a heavy night of partying.

“Ciorba” is the perfect treatment for a stomach in pain after consuming alcohol. Try to eat it as hot as possible and with a lot of bread. to suck the alcohol from your stomach.

After, depending on your taste you should get something light and fresh, maybe a meatless, like a salad, starters or desserts and you will start feeling better immediately

When finish eating, go to sleep for few hours and when you wake up drink a coffee and a fresh juice. You will feel “brand new” and ready to party again.
