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.
