Ever wonder why people turn to Bloody Marys for brunch after a night of heavy drinking? It might be because our bodies inherently know that tomato juice is the alcohol antidote. “One Japanese study showed that upon chasing alcohol with tomato juice, blood alcohol levels became three times lower than with water alone,” Brodsky said. So, when you’re drinking a Blood Mary the morning after, it’s not the hair of the dog that’s setting you right, it’s the hair of the tomato. Or rather the stem.
