Hangover-free booze has been invented and it's going to change the world

Can you imagine a world without hangovers?

A beautiful world where you can get absolutely rat-arsed at Thirsty Thursday down the pub and still rock up to work the next day feeling brand new.

A living nirvana where you can get as shit-faced as you like without having to spend the next 24 hours desperately hanging onto the toilet bowl and the next three days contemplating your existence.

Well this glorious era where the hangover is a thing of the past might just be upon us, according to scientists.

Former chief drugs adviser to the government Dr David Nutt says a new form of synthetic alcohol could mean that we never have to suffer another hangover again.

Alcosynth is scientifically engineered to mimic the brilliant effects of alcohol with few or none of the negative consequences (like having to barf into a bin under your desk at work).

Professor Nutt is championing this revolutionary new product which has already had around 90 new patents to bring it to the world.


He told the Independent: “It will be there alongside the scotch and the gin, they'll dispense the alcosynth into your cocktail and then you'll have the pleasure without damaging your liver and your heart.

“They go very nicely into mojitos. They even go into something as clear as a Tom Collins. One is pretty tasteless, the other has a bitter taste."

The benefits of it are that you won't wake up with a headache, feeling nauseous or with that classic dry mouth and fuzzy head. It's also a lot better for your liver and heart than downing pints of booze every week.

The effects are still the same, though - you'll be more charming, more attractive and a better dancer (okay we can't guarantee any of those).

"People want healthier drinks," Professor Nutt added.

“The drinks industry knows that by 2050 alcohol will be gone."

We're counting down the days and months before this is rolled out in shops and bars. Right now the best we've got is blanco tequila in terms of dodging hangovers, and copious amounts of energy drinks, paracetamol and bacon butties when they hit.
