Everyone knows that a hangover is the price for a great night of drinking. However, what if there was a way to avoid that unpleasant morning after and just bask in the “great” part?
A new synthetic alcohol has been discovered that’s said to completely pass through the hangover phase of drinking, according its creator Professor David Nutt of Imperial College and a former government drugs advisor.
Called ‘alcosynth’, the beverage was designed to mimic the positive effects of alcohol. The best part is, consumers won’t experience nausea, dry mouth, and throbbing heads. Nutt has already patented about 90 different alcosynth compounds.
Professor Nutt compares the effects of alcosynth to four or five drinks before they “max out.”
Because of the high cost of funding research for the drink, it will more than likely be a while before you can get your hands on alcosynth at a bar. However, Nutt hopes that people will be regularly drinking the synthetic alcohol by 2050.
The only downside to the discovery, it seems, is that we will no longer have the excuse to gorge on greasy hangover foods the next day. Hash browns and steak are an amazing way to squash that hangover.
