We're trying to get over the Monday blues and it's so close to hump day so, it's nearly time for a drink... research has come out that shows what drinks will leave you feeling the worst the next morning.

It turns out that identifying troublesome drinks is easier than it seems.

The general rule is, the darker the alcohol, the worse the hangover is going to be. 

The safest drinks that keep that dusty feeling at bay the next morning would be clear liquors like Vodka, Gin, and Tequila. 

In terms of mixing, soft drinks and other high sugar drinks will only add to the hangover, it is best to stick with lower sugar options like fruit juice or soda.

The bottom line is alcohol dehydrates you, so as long as you keep drinking water, your hangover isn't going to be too bad!
