“One Pedialyte, shaken, not stirred.”

Since the dawn of time (or at least since human beings discovered alcohol), there have been endless claims of hangover cures, from the innocuous (coffee, water, or sleeping it off), to bizarre remedies like drinking buffalo milk in Namibia.

But when it comes to swearing off the “morning after” blues, there’s no one we’d trust more than James Bond, who drinks more than his fair share of martinis but never seems to suffer the next morning.

Daniel Craig recently revealed in an interview with DuJour Magazine that his favorite hangover remedy is Pedialyte, that’s right: the kid’s drink that prevents dehydration in adults.

“There’s this thing called Pedialyte,” he told DuJour. “It’s basically a diuretic; 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!”

And he isn’t the only one who’s into it. Pedialyte has been making the rounds as a unique, “miracle” hangover cure for years. Experts say this makes sense, since the electrolytes in Pedialyte ward off dehydration. Pedialyte’s “See the Lyte” marketing campaign markets to adults with a wink, nod, and a promise to eliminate your “rough morning.”
