Cure for the Alcohol Hiccups!

So annoying, so embarrassing — when you’ve had a beer or two and suddenly start hiccuping, it really puts a damper on your night, right? Well, Eureka! I’Too much green beer?ve discovered a cure!

Take a slice of white bread — preferably something substantial such as French bread, or deli toasting bread. Slather it with butter. Then sprinkle a spoonful of sugar over the bread nice and evenly. Now sit down and relax and eat it. Have some water with it.

Seriously, cured my hiccups immediately. I hope it works for you. 🙂

I have to give credit to my childhood friend Carolyn A. — not that she ever had beer hiccups, but when I would go over to her house after school, we would always make these for a snack. I thought it was quite exotic because my mother would never have let me have such a thing.


Polar Dry Sunshine Head

It is so hot today here in Maine that I was looking for a cold drink when I got home — alas, I’ve been on vacation and there’s not much in the ‘fridge. I did have vodka though, so I decided to concoct my own cocktail.

Polar Dry Sunshine Head

  • Sugar
  • Lime Juice
  • Lemon Juice
  • Vodka
  • Ice Cubes
  • Polar Dry Orange

Mix a teaspoon or so of sugar with lemon and lime juices — maybe a tablespoon or 2 of each juice. Pour into tall glass. Add some vodka — I didn’t measure, but you can measure a jigger if you want — and some ice. Then top it up with Polar Dry Orange, give it a stir and there you are!
