The Mexican hangover, flu and dehydration cure that gives Gatorade a run for its money. 


  • 12 ounces cold agua mineral (in the U.S., Topo Chico is my preferred brand of mineral water)
  • 3/41 teaspoon of salt
  • juice of 1 lime


  1. Pour mineral water in a highball glass and add salt.
  2. Squeeze the juice of one whole lime directly into the glass and stir to mix everything well, until the salt dissolves. You can also toss in a few lime wedges if you like.
  3. Add ice if you like, and drink the entire glass while it’s still cold.


If you’re suffering from serious dehydration, please be smart and consult a physician.
