Daniel Craig’s Go-To Hangover Cure Is a Weird One

If it’s good enough for James Bond, it’s good enough for us.

There is no more beloved folk medicine to the modern man than the hangover cure. Old-school drinkers swear by a little hair of the dog, but there’s an entire industry of innovative IV drips and newfangled pills designed to make your post-drinking aches and pains a thing of the past.

There’s an easier way, according to Daniel Craig. In a new interview with DuJour, the man behind James Bond revealed a simple way to  banish your bourbon headache: Pedialyte, the over-the-counter fluid designed to help rejuvenate children with bad cases of diarrhea.

“It’s basically a diuretic,” explains Craig. “You give it to kids who are dehydrated. If you wake up in the morning and you’ve got one of those on standby and you down the whole lot… you can carry on drinking!

How did Craig, who plays the martini-swilling murder machine in theaters, end up drinking formula meant for babies? That’s not very Bond-like.

“I was told that’s what Mark [Wahlberg] swears by,” he toldDuJour. “It’s the difference between life and death as far as I’m concerned.”

If it’s good enough for 007 and it’s good enough for Marky Mark, then it’s good enough for us.
