Russia’s raw eggs in salty water
The best vodka in the world comes from Russia, and its no surprise the Russians are experts in chugging down their own product to warm up in their frigid winters. To counteract the effect of their colorless and potent liquor, they have concocted their own hangover remedy in the form of raw eggs in salty water.
The cysteine in eggs processes the alcoholic byproduct metabolized by the liver, which then turns into the antioxidant glutathione that rids our body of toxins. Meanwhile, the fatty acids in eggs help coat our stomach lining to protect it from the corroding effects of alcohol. Mix a couple of raw eggs in salty water to taste, knock it down in one go, and wait for recovery.
