Owner of Arcata Liquors Jeff Nagan’s hangover remedy is Advil, coconut water, and yerba mate.

“Advil helps with headaches,” Nagan said. “Coconut water helps with electrolytes, and yerba mate, well that gets you back into the game.”

Sidelines bartender for nine years, Kelly Ridgway, hangover remedy is hair of the dog.

“Hair of the dog, drinking whatever you were drinking the night before,” Ridgway said.

The phrase “hair of the dog” means that whatever troubles you, you should have more of. So, if vodka troubles you when you wake up, you should have more vodka.
