If you had too many on New Year's Eve, and are feeling the pain come Monday morning, here's a little trick I tried recently:
Fill a beer glass half full with tomato juice (or V8, or spicy V8, or something similar).
Fill glass to top with beer. (I opted for Miller High Life.)
It sounds less than appetizing (although, what constitutes "appetizing" in this condition?), but it helps. It tasted surprisingly refreshing, and the queasiness was gone within minutes. A squeeze of fresh lemon would have been nice, but I was out, as I had used the lemon the night before in highballs made with Wild Turkey 101 and Vernor's ginger ale.

Obviously, the best practice is to avoid getting into that situation. But, occasionally, we have too much. What's your hangover cure?
