Review: Last Round Hangover Support

…..The Hangover… it’s not just the title to one of my favorite movies of all time, it’s every social drinkers worst nightmare. And after a long night of drinking, networking and socializing it’s the last thing you want to wake up with in the morning. For those of us that drink on the regular, we’ve heard it all and tried it all when looking for cures to the common hangover. Eat more, drink water, rest, avoid mixing types of alcohol, avoid cheaper alcohols etc. The problem is most of us know what things to do AFTER a hangover has already crept up rather then what to do to PREVENT it. Or even worse, we feed into myths rather than facts on how to cure it. As a proud member of the “I’ve only had one hangover EVER” club, I make it a point to take as many precautions to avoid getting a hangover as possible. That being said when I heard of a product out there using all natural ingredients that you could drink before going to bed BEFORE the hangover sets in, I just knew I had to try it. Last Round Hangover Support comes to you from Herbasway, the fine makers of several liquid dietary supplements and features a combination of all natural herbal extracts such as Kudzu, Stevia, green tea, and licorice. While most of us are familiar with licorice, green tea, and the stevia(sugar) plant, it’s the lessor known Kudzu that’s the star of this how. It’s claim to fame is being able to reduce cravings for alcohol.

….. I was lucky enough to receive a goodies package from the fine folks over at Last Round complete with a drinking cup, some beer pong balls and a cool poster (Thanks Guys!), but the toughest part was finding a good night to give it a try. As fate should have it, a drinking festival hit my town last weekend where myself and the Mrs. were able to finally let loose. One of the biggest worries I had when preparing myself to down the 2.4 oz bottle of liquid “get out of jail free card” was that it would either A) have a horrible taste, B) have a horrible odor, or C) All of the above. To my surprise it featured a sweet/sugary odor and a taste that resembled green tea which for me was a plus. So what’s the verdict; After a night of drinking about 6 to 8 (strong) margaritas and 3 or 4 tequila shots, with very little to eat, I woke up feeling about as good as if I had just slept 10 hours on a bed of feathers. I felt rested, and saw no lingering affects of a night of careless drinking. Success !

Price: $2.99/Bottle

Grade: A+

…..If you’re still not convinced, unable to get a hold of a bottle, or flat out just don’t want to give it a try, you can always check out my post on other Hangover Remedies to help you next time you’re out.

Orange Blossom Pilsner Review

Buying a six pack of beer isn’t as simple as it once was. Over the past decade Craft beers, which are beers made from specialty breweries or microbreweries, have exploded onto the seen. They often invite you to learn of innovative ways of making beer and feature unique and exotic flavors. Flavors such as chocolate, oatmeal, raspberry, and cherry are blasting onto the scene and not just in your favorite rum or vodka. Flavored beer is catching on big and that brought me to take a look in my own backyard. Right here in Central Florida, you can find Orange Blossom Pilsner, the creation of Tom Moench. Using 2.3 teaspoons of orange blossom honey in each bottle, the result is a sweet but not too overpowering taste along with strong aromas of honey and citrus. It goes down easy and the 5.5% alcohol content is barely noticeable. For those of you in love with flavor, try the Orange Blossom Pilsner Squared, which is essentially the same recipe, but with half the water leaving an even bolder flavor. Along with more flavor it also offers a 11.5% alcohol content. . I’ll have to admit, I’m not the biggest fan of beer but when enough buzz surrounds a product I’m willing to try it. This one did not disappoint. A six pack will run you about 6.99 at your local grocery or package store.
