Hangover remedies from around the word

So the pattern goes: we have one too many drinks the night before, and wake up desperate for either the rewind button or a quick remedy. We’ve all been there, regardless of nationality (hangovers are a universal point of commisery). Here are nine tried and true, sometimes bizarre but effective hangover remedies from across the globe.
