Ahh the hangover. We’ve all had them in the past, and chances are we’ll all have them again. But it doesn’t have to be so bad – these before and after–cocktails tricks will help ease the pain and discomfort that comes after a big night out.
Here are some of my thoughts, and tips, on how we gals can, with elegance and ease, handle our booze and look good doing it
I, still to this day, remember my first sip of wine. I guess I was about six years old and my sometimes-present-but-mostly-not papa was visiting from I don’t remember where.

Wine is the drink most often paired with a meal. Wine helps food to strut its stuff – and vice versa – but there are other, often overlooked, cocktails of equal importance and just as much lovability. That’s right – I’m talking about the before and the after cocktails, also known as apéritifs and digestifs.
