Around the world fro travelling

The festive period is upon us again, and with so many celebrations it can be hard to keep up the pace. Luckily, there are some pretty inventive hangover cures out there to help you make it through to the new year. We’ve compiled some of the most interesting from around the world to ensure that you have a fighting chance the next day…

 

1. Leche de tigre (tiger’s milk), Peru

Your Peruvian hangover cure comes with a side of ceviche – leche de tigre is the marinade used to cure the fish. You might drink it from the bowl after you’ve finished eating or sip it from a glass on the side, but either way, the combination of lime, onion, chilli, garlic and fresh coriander will be sure to blow away those cobwebs.

 

2. Shakshuka, Tunisia

This delicious mixture of red peppers, harissa, tomatoes and eggs is thought to have originated in Tunisia, but is incredibly popular across North Africa and parts of the Middle East. Served with fresh, crusty bread, it’ll put your regular breakfast to shame.

 

3. Ostrich egg omelette, South Africa

Got a group of hungover friends? You’ll want to embrace a South African hangover cure and whip up an ostrich egg omlette. There’ll be plenty to go around as one ostrich egg contains the equivalent of two-dozen chicken eggs and weighs on average 1.4kg.

4. Lechona, Colombia

This much-celebrated Colombian dish is made from a whole pig stuffed with onions, peas, rice, and roasted for over 23 hours. As it’s so time consuming to prepare, this robust recipe is usually served on Sundays, making it the perfect remedy to a big Saturday night out.

 

5. Kokoreç, Turkey

On paper Kokoreç might not sound inspiring – especially if you’re feeling rough – but once you’ve tried this Turkish sandwich, you’ll understand why it’s a the most sought after fast-food in Istanbul. It’s made with several kinds of lamb or goat organs, wrapped in the intestines, seasoned and cooked on a skewer in a similar way to a doner kebab.

 

6. A dip in a hot spring, Iceland

If your heavy night has led to a loss of appetite, there are few better cures than a dip in one of Iceland’s beautiful blue pools.

One of the best hot springs to head to is Landmannalauger, a stunning outpost just inland from the south coast, where hot water streams mix with cold water streams to create the perfect hot-bath temperature. Get ready to laze for hours.
