After a night of revelry, recovery mocktails might be the perfect sip to start the day. While many people might have that perfected a hangover remedy, the reality is that that “big regret” needs to be washed away. Although some people might attest to hair of the dog, the reality is that another cocktail isn’t always a top choice.
Recently, Alka-Seltzer partnered with Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix from Vanderpump Rules to mix up some fizzy relief with recovery mocktails. While some people might think fondly of that Alka-Seltzer plop, plop, fizz, fizz tag line, the reality is that these mocktails are not your grandma’s hangover relief. With some beverage creativity, these mocktails are both refreshing and a savior after a big night out.
During the moment, it can be hard to appreciate the impact of all those beverage choices for the morning after. While everyone is different, Tom and Ariana have a few opinions on a few beverage that could make your head a little more fuzzy in the morning.
They said, “Too much sugar can give some of the worst headaches. Personally, we’ve found the effects of champagne to be up there when it comes to indigestion and headache pain. We definitely try to avoid those super sugary drinks as much as possible. We never feel great after drinking them. Tequila can be a bit risky in terms of “big regrets,” but that’s what makes the night memorable sometimes, you know?!”
Could recovery mocktails be your morning after savior?
As mocktails have become a huge trend, the reality is that the mocktail could be that morning after savior. But, it isn’t just about another beverage.

We love to sleep in and have a yummy breakfast the next morning, but really, the easiest way for us to find relief the day after is an Alka-Seltzer Mocktail! They are so easy to mix up and so delicious, it’s totally our go-to for recovery!”
