Does Organic Booze Cure Hangovers?

By now, we know that organic food is better for your health and the environment than non-organic food, but what about organic alcohol? How exactly does the organic booze affect the morning after? Recently Sean Evans, a writer for the New York Daily News, put organic liqueur to the test. One night he drank only organic cocktails and the next night he imbibed their exact counterparts. Starting with the organic, he compared his hangovers:

There was no headache, and at first everything felt groggy. But despite being slightly slow, after a quick shower nearly all symptoms had dissipated. There was no nausea, no stomach pain; no normal hangover feelings. But the next morning was completely different. Everything felt sluggish and slow, and there was a dull headache, which lingered for a few hours. My churning stomach was quelled only after lying down for an extra hour, and several bottles of water were needed before an attempt to truly start the day could occur.

Being a huge fan of Lotus vodka, it's no surprise to me that the organic alcohol made him feel less hungover. So do you drink organic alcohol? If so, have you noticed a difference in your hangovers?

totally a placebo effect based with his body being dehydrated two days in a row.

Is there an organic whiskey? I'll do some testing on it and let you know if it makes a difference ;) I don't get that hung over generally--I tend to hydrate really well when I'm drinking.

I would think there are all sorts of confounding variables to this "study." For one I notice I drink less and nurse organic cocktails more just because of the environment I tend to drink them in.

I, personally, have always found that my hangover is worse when someone else is buying drinks. Just an observation.

lol, and of course he felt worse the second night of drinking. A freshman in college could surely tell you that.

You know there is no proof that organic foods are better for us as a whole, right? Some are, some aren't.

i've always heard that it's the distillation process that makes you feel more or less hungover the next day - i.e. if it's distilled more times you don't get the horrible hangover etc. i do wonder though if there's any impact with the organic alcohol. i would imagine that it's really just the same - but that's just me.

I don't know about anyone else, but I know if I drink two days in a row I feel worse after the second day no matter what I was drinking. Color me shocked that his hangover was worse the second day...
