Part 2: Kókómjólk.
After years of research, your humble editors have concluded that Kókómjólk is probably the best nonprescription hangover cure with a picture of a striped, muscular cat on it.
What’s this Kókómjólk, you ask? Well, it’s Iceland’s premier chocolatey milky drink. In fact, it’s Iceland’s only chocolately milky drink.
Which is probably why, having nothing else to compare it to, we all insist it’s so special. Matter of national pride, we suppose.
But actually, it’s just like any other chocolatey milky drink, and, as you might imagine, if drunk on top of Viking lager and the compulsory first-night-out-in-Reykjavik Brennivín shots, it’ll just make you feel kind of, well, queasy.
We’re just sayin’. Not like that happened to us, or anything.
However, we totally recommend it as a cheap and freely available cure for those damned day-after hangovers we seem to be getting all the time. (Hmm, must be the mix of fresh air and northern lights.)
Kókómjólk: Available pretty much everywhere — much more widely than Alca-Seltzer, anyway — and it doesn’t cost a lot. (And no, in case you were wondering, we’re not getting any kickbacks for the promotional effort, but if the people who make it are reading this: you know where to send all those complementary boxes.)
