A new study may help drinkers pick their poison. In a head-to-head comparison, bourbon gave drinkers a more severe hangover than vodka, report Damaris Rohsenow of Brown University and colleagues in an upcoming issue of Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research.
Mind you, it’s not the outcome of the study that is astonishing. I could have told Dr. Rohsenow that dark liquors leave you with a worse hangover than clear liquors. That’s really the astonishing part, that money was spent on a study for a result that anyone who’s ever gotten hammered could have told us.
Still, this must have made for a fun night if you were one of the test subjects!
