I was at a bar recently and couldn’t shake the hiccups.
My usual method is drinking upside down, which works 9 times out of 10 (not a bad record, me thinks). Of course, it looks pretty damn weird, since you have to sorta bend forward and drink from the opposite side of the glass… but if it helps, I honestly couldn’t care less.
This time, it didn’t work. The bartender gave me a slice of lemon that he dashed with bitters and sprinkled on some sugar. Surprisingly, it almost immediately took care of it.
Does anyone have an explanation for this particular method or care to share your own?
