I love the weekends! I mean... who doesn't? Going out, meeting with friends, being with my family, eating whatever I want-- basically, living the dream 😎 However, there are somedays where I party way too hard-- or not even-- but having a drink with my dinner is not always a good idea. And, as a Mexican alcohol is present mostly everywhere. That is why, I want to share with you my favorite hangover cure and the reason why it actually works.


This Spanish word literally means rehydration drink. Likewise, the day after the first thing your body wants is a powerful drink that will have the perfect effect on you in order to keep your hangover as far as possible. But, what is the magic a drink must have to actually work? Electrolytes and glucose. 

Electrolytes help the body replace the potassium and salt lost when drinking. Therefore they are perfect to boost your energy and release the resting alcohol in your system. 

Sparkling water, lemon and salt will be your next must after a night out. A “Rusa” as known in Mexico.

The sparkling water is a great source of magnesium, which gives the body energy as well as the pinch of salt. Whereas the glucose allows the body to function properly and get back to life. Lastly, the lemon zest gives the drink vitamin C that works in the body as an antioxidant. 

Why should you love it? 

Because it is fresh, easy to make, cheap and delicious 😛! Tbh, it is one of the best hangover cures there is. As a college student, you'll most likely have all of the ingredients in your dorm/apt and it will literally take you five minutes to prepare your cure.

 I simply love it, and you should love it too! Try it, you'll be amazed.
