What drinks cause a less severe hangover?!

Question: What drinks cause a less severe hangover!?
Beer, wine, spirits or mixes!?
I am going to a party and thinking of buying a box of wine just cos of the high drink to price ratio, but I am anxious about its effectsWww@FoodAQ@Com

Ok, ignoring the other silly answers on this board "Don't drink at parties!.!.!."

Ok so, I think to avoid hangover you should stay away from harder liquor, the harder the drink the more ethonol it has in it, which is one of the key factors to feeling crap!. Wine is ok, but I don't think it is much of a party drink, and it has to be good quality to not make you feel sick while you are drinking it!. I think beer would be the best way to go, but a lager (light coloured beer) and not a malt, because malts tend to leave you feeling worse too!. I think though that if you are trying to get drunk then there is nothing much you are do about getting a hangover!. If you are bringing the drinks just to get maybe a little tipsy a good lager should be enough for you, and is better for parties, because it allows you to be constantly sipping a drink without getting too drunk or stinking of wine of spirits!. Don't go with vodka like the other guy said, you wont taste much, and youll be gone way too quick!.
Beer is the best party drink!. Wines are for dinner parties, formal ones!. And spirits are for old men who are depressed and want to get drunk fast!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Most hangovers that I have experienced have been the cause of too much alcohol and not enough water!. Using that logic to guide my answer I would say that spirits give the worst hangovers, then wine, then mixes, and then commercial beer!.

If you are drinking home brewed beer this equation goes right out the window!. However I have found that no matter what I am drinking if I drink a one to one ratio with just plain water I don't have hangover the next day!.

So for every drink you have, drink 8 ounces of water!. For example, if a shot is one ounce, and I do 8 shots of spirits then I should drink 8 to 16 ounces of water (1:2 ratio to be even safer)!.

The short answer though is to go out and have fun, just remember to stay hydrated!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I guess everyone has their opinion - so I'll put in mine!.
From Experience - any drinking can cause a hangover!.
But there's stuff you can do to lower that risk!.

Too much wine (like a whole bottle consumed yourself) is going to give you a nasty headache!. Try to split the bottle with someone!. There's no way around this one - red or white!.

Hard Alcohol can also give you a hangover - but to drastically reduce that risk - Stick to one type of hard alcohol!. For instance!.!.!.!. if you start with margaritas - stick to tequila all night - dont throw in rum and vodka and everything else!.
Pick one - and stick with it!.

also - higher quality hard alcohols don't hurt as bad the next day!. Back to the tequila - pick a good quality 100% blue agave tequila!. The purer the better!. Same for the vodka and rums!.

Finally - make sure to not drink on an empty stomach and drink lots of water before, during, and after drinking!. Even during the night keep some by your bed and everytime you wake up take a drink!.

These are proven methods - as I tend to tie one on every weekend or so!. So take from it what you want!.!.!.

I agree with the post above!. Though if you're a college student like me, or have a college student budget go for the beer!.
Buy a six pack of something light, a simple Coors Lite or Bud Lite is worth the money for quantity!. Only buy six as this will limit your consumption and promise yourself to stick to whatever you buy!.
Remember this "Beer before liquor, never sicker!. Liquor before beer, in the clear!." Though from experience they will both make you feel like crap in the morning!.

!.!.!. If you feel like you have had a little too much to drink at the end of the night, here's what you do!. Drink a glass of water with two asprin and a multivitamin!. The vitamin will replace the nutrients that you will have lost from peeing out your system!. The asprin will keep your capillaries from narrowing, thus protecting against a more severe headache in the morning!. If you're a big guy take three or four aspirin!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You don't need alc to party, agree, and don't buy wine it's stupid!.

vodka is the answer, and drink slowly

Rick Byrne is a numpty cos it's not right!. every alcohol expert will tell you that- the more %, the heavier hangover is NOT right! some unfiltered (natural) but lighter beers can cause the craziest hangover ever! the same about all brandy, cognac, all the stuff that's not meant for heavy drinking! ethanol means nothing itself!.!.!.!. clear vodka, tequila or any hard liquor will give less hangover or no hangover at all (if you don't mix), I assure you that, while the beer kicks!. depends what though!. I know this perfectly well!.
I repeat- wine is the worst!.
beer is okay but it's not a good idea to get really drunk with it!.

so, these are simple facts as well as experience!.

tequila and vodka are the best!.

and drink with coated stomach, meaning- you have eaten before, especially good- something greasy!. and drink water!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Wine will give you some pretty sweet hangovers!. The idea is to stay clear of the sweet drinks, because the sugars usually are behind those nasty hangovers in the morning and liquor by itself already has more than enough sugar!.
