The Baker Brothers’ Hangover Cure Recipe

The best hangover cure ever – a spicy Bloody Mary soup complete with a few extra ‘medicinal’ ingredients to give it a real kick.

Serves 6


  • 2 tins chopped tomatoes

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 300-400ml chicken or turkey stock

  • 75ml dry sherry

  • 4 tbsp chilli vodka (or lemon vodka or plain vodka)

  • 1 tbsp honey

  • 1 long red chilli, finely chopped

  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 pinch celery salt

  • 1- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, to taste

  • Tabasco, to taste


  1. Heat a saucepan over a gentle heat, add the olive oil and onion and sweat for 15-20 minutes until really softened and slightly caramelised. Add the garlic and chilli and cook for another minute then add the chopped tomatoes and bring to a simmer.

  2. Add the chicken stock, return to a simmer and cook for a few minutes.

  3. Pass the soup through a mouli legume or blitz in a food blender until smooth and thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

  4. Add the honey, sherry, Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce. Check the seasoning and adjust accordingly.

  5. Heat the vodka in a ladle over the heat until it flames then pour carefully into the tomato soup and stir well to combine.

  6. Serve as you wish.
