Florida Flavors: FDR at Delano cocktail fights hangovers
Florida Travel Guide: Celebrate Memorial Day with a special drink (or two)
The weather is sunny and warm and it’s promising to be a nice, relaxing Memorial Day weekend in Florida. What better way to celebrate than with an icy cold cocktail in hand? Of course, the dread of a Tuesday morning hangover might prevent you from going out and enjoying yourself. Mercy might change all that.
Drink cocktails mixed with a hangover “cure”
Mercy is being marketed as a hangover-prevention beverage. Used mostly as a premium alcoholic beverage mixer, this wonder drink is made up of B1 vitamins that are known to offset the negative effects of alcohol.
Apparently, drinking an 8.4-ounce can of Mercy using or right after you consume alcohol can counter the after-effects of four alcoholic beverages. Mercy is also low in calories (60 per can) and it’s also caffeine-free and flavored naturally.
