    Well apparently theres a drink that you get pissed again the next morning if you drink water?

    I heard it was pernod, and i googled around a bit.. and found a few people saying this but no actual sources and no scientific reasoning.

    So im asking if anyone has tried this / can confirm it is pernod.


    And for the record, its not because im some kind of pikey / alcoholic who wants a cheap was of getting drunk, i was thinking more about driving home from parties the next morning. :p:

    -Discuss

    edit: Nevermind looked into it again and found the answer out. Its drinking spirits neat and not just pernod.

    Lol this is the stupidest thing I've ever heard.
    "If you drink enough water throughout the night you shouldnt get a hangover.

    But remember.. your body can detect alcohol. If you drink lots of spirits neat then your stomach will close (not allowing any to pass through to the intestine) due the high concentration of alcohol. This means you can drink lots of spirits all night and not get too pissed. If you dilute it (with water, beer etc) the stomach will then re-open, allowing it all to suddenly pass through. This is why drinking just spirits all night then drinking water the next morning can be bad (or good, if you look at it that way ).

    So remember to drink plenty of diluting liquids throught the night so you definatly be able to drive the next day. You dont want to drive pissed."


    Yeh, definately the stupidest thing i've ever heard to... :rolleyes:

    Its Ouzo.

    I recently went on holiday to Greece and its well known out there. They always tell you in the tavernas not to drink water in the morning and its really true because my mum stupidly forgot and did it.

    What if you use flavoured water?

    As in you add Ribena?

    I knew drinking water was evil!

    (You're crazy. OP.)

    ( I still don't know what OP is)

    ( Can someone tell me? Thanks.. OP? )

    To all you naysayers, there is a drink that does this. You've probably heard of it.

    It's called Absinthe. If it is "proper" Absinthe with enough of the wormwood ingredient, it crystallises in your stomach and when you drink the next day, you get drunk again.

    ahhhhhh thankyou, so it has more of an effect with absinthe than just drinking neat spirits because of the wormwood.

    And pernod richards company became famous for its absinthe first... hence the pernod.

    good work (y)

    Im sure that rumour is about aftershock.

    Someone told me something about it crystallises in your stomach and then drinking water sets it off again.

    All I know is after that night aftershock will never be touching my lips again! Have never been so ill before. We were trying to see who could hold in in their mouth the longest before swallowing. So wrong!
