Cardiologists world-wide will not endorse this article.

Bacon contains a high level of unique amino acids which interact with the body stimulating a clearer mind…which (let’s be honest) is always good after a crazy night out on the town.  A (much less tasty) alternative to not drinking delicious bacon cocktails is to consume 3L of water (that is a lot of H20) after you’re home to guarantee a less intense hangover.

So it’s just logical that bacon cocktails are your way to go!
