Hangover Helper Mishloach Manot

We love Purim, but we have to admit that it’s a recipe for disaster. A population not known for its ability to hold its liquor is commanded to fast all day, then drink so much they can’t distinguish between “Blessed Be Mordecai” and “Cursed Be Haman.” This results, all too predictably, in another tradition: the Purim morning hangover.

With this in mind, we present Hangover Helper mishloach manot. Sure, hamantaschen and rugelach are nice, but if you’re like us, the last thing you want to see on a queasy Purim morning is prune filling. This thoughtful basket is stocked with all your Hebrew hangover needs instead. L’Chaim!

You will need:

A basket (or bucket, or trash can, as circumstances dictate)

Tissue paper

Aspirin

Eye mask

Earplugs

Saltines

Airsickness bags

Hair of the dog (vodka, Manischewitz, slivovitz or whatever you like)

1. Line basket with tissue paper and fill with hangover helper goodies.

2. Deliver to the afflicted.

3. Be happy! It’s Purim!
