The Thirsty Traveler Reveals His Hangover Tips ... Just in Time for the

TORONTO, Dec. 15 /CNW/ - Hot off the heels of the Las Vegas red carpet launch event for The Hangover on DVD and Blu-ray (in stores TODAY), the Thirsty Traveler's Kevin Brauch shares some expert hangover advice with Canadians.

Kevin's Top 5 Tips for Preventing a Hangover:

    1.  Avoid mixing drinks. "Just because Santa Claus visits the entire
        world in one night doesn't mean you should do the same with your
        liquor cabinet," jokes Kevin.

    2.  Stick with clear spirits. "Brown spirits have more congeners
        (impurities) in them which do a great job of hurting your head," he

    3.  Tit for tat. Kevin recommends, "One glass of water for every glass of
        spirits you consume."

    4.  Drink the best, get some rest. Premium spirits are, in theory, made
        better than their cheaper counterparts. Kevin suggests, "The clearer,
        purer distillation costs a bit more but will cost you a lot less in
        the morning."

    5.  Save your sweet tooth for cookies and cake. "Stay away from sweet,
        creamy, froufrou cocktails," Kevin says. "These drinks are almost
        guaranteed to hurt you in the morning."

    As the Gemini Award-winning host of The Thirsty Traveler, and floor host
of Iron Chef America, Kevin Brauch is unquestionably the world's King of
Cocktails. He says: "If all else fails and you fall victim to the spirits of
the season, here are some unconventional hangover cures."

    Kevin's Tips for Morning Success:

    1.  Watch a good movie. "The Hangover is my pick for this holiday.
        Laughter is certainly the best medicine for anything that ails you,"
        Kevin says.

    2.  Rub lemon under your drinking armpit? "Believe it or not, this is
        Puerto Rico's hangover remedy of choice," he says with a grin.

    3.  Milk Thistle is an herbal remedy that dates back more than 2000
        years, and Kevin says it promotes good liver function.

    4.  Water is still the single most important item, according to Kevin.
        "Many hangovers are due to dehydration."

    5.  iPod. "And yes, if all else fails, there is even an iPod app for
        that," Kevin jokes.
