6 Hangover Helpers for Cinco de Mayo

6 hangover helpers for cinco de mayo featuredetoximage
The 5th of May provides the perfect excuse to down margaritas, or tequila straight up if you prefer, eat bagfuls of tortilla chips and gobs of guacamole. Though the date is actually a celebration of the Mexican army’s upset victory over the French forces in 1862 at the Battle of Pueblo, most people in this country just know it as the time of year they tend to overindulge in the South of the Border country’s delicious and intoxicating exports. Because it’s all fun and games and tacos until you wake up with a puffy face, clogged pores and a churning stomach, here are some remedies for seis de Mayo.
