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)
- 3/4–1 teaspoon of salt
- juice of 1 lime
- Pour mineral water in a highball glass and add salt.
- 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.
- 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.
