DREYER'S/EDY'S: SWEET CURES FOR HOLIDAY HANGOVERS

 OAKLAND, Calif., Dec. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Hangovers ... Ugh! Waking up in the morning with a hangover after a fun-filled evening celebrating the holiday season is enough to spoil anyone's good cheer and turn them into a Scrooge.
 Despite feeling like a marching band is playing inside your brain, hangovers don't have to spoil your day. There are thousands of home remedies, folk cures and even a few medical treatments to rid the malady. While some hangover remedies may seem like old wive's tales, their origins go as far back as New Year's celebrations and the creation of alcohol itself. Many claim that among other hangover cures, ice cream is one of the best. A soothing, cool, refreshing treat to calm the jitters is a favorite cure of many of the nation's best bartenders.
 William Miller, a bartender at the popular Houlihan's Restaurant at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, recommends a strange concoction of 2 cups soda water, 1/4 cup bitters and scoop of vanilla or chocolate ice cream. Miller describes his creation as "an herbal float." He noted that vanilla ice cream is best to use, but if you can't stand the taste of the bitters, chocolate ice cream helps disguise the bitter taste.
 Mary Reichert of Shenanigans on Division Street in Chicago also believes a good hangover cure includes ice cream and bitters. However, Mary's cure also includes the "hair of the dog that bit you." Her hangover remedy is made from 2 cups 7-Up, 1/4 cup bitters, a shot of vodka and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
 Norma Crane of the Red Robin Restaurant in Santa Ana, Calif., vows that the best hangover remedy is a big, thick and frosty chocolate shake teamed with a juicy hamburger. The hamburger coats the stomach and the shake soothes and refreshes the mind and body.
 Dreyer's/Edy's Grand Ice Cream also has some therapeutic recipes to help cure the "morning after" blues. Some favorites include:
 Mellow Yellow Fizz -- 2 cups of 7-Up fizzed with a scoop of lemon sorbet and garnished with two laid-back lemon slices and kissed by a sprig of fresh mint (okay to chew on leaf to freshen the breath).
 Right-On Raspberry Smoothie -- 2 scoops of Dreyer's or Edy's Raspberry Frozen Yogurt Inspirations, 3/4 cup cran-raspberry drink and 1/2 cup low fat milk blended together to form an oh-so-cool Smoothie.
 Peachy-Keen shake -- 2 scoops of Dreyer's or Edy's Peach and Raspberry Frozen Yogurt Inspirations blended with 1 cup low fat milk. The sides of the glass should be garnished with whole fresh raspberries and sliced ripe peaches. Good for breakfast or a mid-day pick-me-up.
 Another breakfast favorite is the Cantaloupe-Orange Smoothie made with 3/4 cup chopped cantaloupe, 3/4 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed or reconstituted from frozen, 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice, 2 cups firmly packed Dreyer's or Edy's Vanilla Frozen Yogurt Inspirations blended until smooth.
 If the above remedies don't do the trick, bartenders suggest doing one of two things -- imbibe the "hair of the dog that bit you" or go back to bed and try again later.
 Happy Holidays!
