We’ve all experienced it, that one alcoholic beverage that seems to make us feel more “hungover” than others. But why is that?
Ultimately a hangover is caused by dehydration, so drinking plenty of water before, after and in between each alcoholic beverage is the key to avoidance. However this isn’t always possible.So what drinks should you avoid?
According to a Dutch study, darker alcohol makes you more hungover than lighter alcohol. That’s why vodka doesn’t seem to affect you as badly as rum. That’s because when alcohol ferments, chemicals called congeners are created and create deep flavours like you get in red wine and other dark alcohol but they are also what’s responsible for the rough hangover.
So basically if you want to avoid the hangover, stick to lighter, clear booze.
