The best hangover cure

185Holly Golightly didn't tread softly at all when it came to gulping down the booze.

If you, too, awake on the first day of 2008 with the mean reds, I have a foolproof plan for taming them. First, rent "Breakfast at Tiffany's" because it's fun, witty and unbearably easy on the eyes.

Then, prepare my favorite tipple: a banana milkshake. It's a proven remedy for the worst Champers O.D. aftermath. The potassium and magnesium in the bananas will restore your depleted levels and the honey will up your sugar paucity. The milk should soothe the tummy too.


The Holly Gone Too Far Banana  Milkshake

1 pint of cold milk
1 scoop of vanilla ice cream
1 banana
1 tablespoon of honey

Put all ingredients into a blender, cover your ears, and puree like a banshee.

Serves two. (Or one person who drank enough liquor for two.)

Favorite Holly Golightly quote:
Paul Varjak: "Holly, you're drunk."
Holly Golightly: "True."

Cheers, darling. Happy New Year!
