Boozer Hangover Remedy Review
We want to start off by saying we really threw ourselves into this Boozer hangover remedy review by getting ourselves seriously, seriously hung over. Many drinks were involved, of sundry types, all calculated to leach the moisture out of our cells and cause us to wake up feeling like we were hit by a truck. There was red wine. There was white wine. There was bourbon. There were sugary sweet cocktails. There was neverending vodka on the rocks. And the beers, oh sweet Jeebus the beers.
We're not telling you this to make you think drinking like that is cool - we just want you to know we're dedicated to our craft. Boozer's claim to fame is that its ingredients help you metabolize the poisons in the booze and replenish your vitamins, etc. Find out how it worked for us after the jump.
Boozer Hangover Remedy
Available in 8.4 fl ounce cans at Natural Med Herbals
Typical Price: $2.79 per can
The Look: Boozer comes in cans that are very reminiscent of Red Bull in shape and size, but the coloring is completely different, with a blazing red/orange vibe that hurt our eyes a bit as we blearily pulled the can from the fridge. Plus, there's that flaming dog on the label that was looking at us and judging...
The Nose: As we furtively sniffed the can, wondering if we could put anything in our stomach without seeing it again immediately, we were greeted with a light citrusy nose that put our fears at ease. The liquid itself was a bright, fluorescent color much like other energy-type drinks we've had, so that didn't put us off before we took our first sip.
The Taste: The flavor was surprisingly subtle as compared to the expectations set by the packaging. It was citrusy, but in a mellow way, and didn't have that "crushed baby aspirin 'n fruit punch" flavor that's the only way we can describe Red Bull. At first we wished it was a bit more tart to plow through the horrible taste in our mouth, but once we took a few more sips we felt they got it right. Any more flavor and our abused body wouldn't have been able to take it.
Some of the listed ingredients for Boozer included "Milk Thistle Extract, Potassium Citrate, Bromelain, Grape Seed Extract, Zinc Sulfate, Ginger Root Extract." We couldn't taste any of those things necessarily, but it comforted us that they were there for some reason.
The Verdict: Perhaps our favorite thing about Boozer was the fact that it's caffeine free, which allowed us to drink the can and lie back down immediately. We woke up feeling like nine miles of bad road, but after drinking a can of Boozer and a short nap, we woke up again feeling rejuvenated.
We would definitely continue to drink Boozer when our hangovers get the best of us, and we recommend you try it if you can get your hands on it and let us know what you think. If nothing else, it was developed by pharmacists and it's packed with all kinds of vitamins that get depleted when you're drinking. All that without trying to bring your heart rate up to the speed of a hummingbird's by packing it full of caffeine and other crap, which made us feel better about it in the long run. Hell, it worked well enough we might just replace our current regimen of "hair of the dog" with the Boozer dog moving forward.
